UN praises China’s role in Korean Penin­sula is­sue

Shanghai Daily - - TOP NEWS - (Xin­hua)

THE United Na­tions said on Tues­day that China has played an im­por­tant role in the sit­u­a­tion on the Korean Penin­sula.

“China has an im­por­tant part to play in the sit­u­a­tion on the Korean Penin­sula and it has played a pos­i­tive role,” Stephane Du­jar­ric, spokesman for UN Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral An­to­nio Guter­res, said at a daily news brief­ing.

The UN chief has hailed Tues­day’s his­toric sum­mit be­tween the lead­ers of the United States and the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea as “an im­por­tant mile­stone.” Guter­res also praised China’s key role in re­solv­ing the Korean Penin­sula is­sue in April af­ter Kim’s visit to Bei­jing at the end of March. It is im­por­tant for the DPRK to have an open di­a­logue with the United States, as China has al­ways rec­om­mended, so that a de­nu­cle­ariza­tion could oc­cur in a peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment, Guter­res said. China is com­mit­ted to the de­nu­cle­ariza­tion of the Korean Penin­sula, and it is also nec­es­sary to ad­dress the DPRK’s rea­son­able se­cu­rity con­cerns, Chi­nese State Coun­cilor and For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi said in May.
