Chinese Diplomat: Kim Jong Un Focused on 'Achieving Denuclearization'

Chinese Diplomat: Kim Jong Un Focused on 'Achieving Denuclearization'

By    |   Thursday, 03 May 2018 11:00 AM

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is focused on ending his country’s nuclear weapons program, a Chinese diplomat said, Reuters reported.

"Kim Jong Un said achieving the denuclearization of the peninsula is the firm position of the North Korean side," the report said, quoting the Chinese foreign ministry.

Wang Yi, China’s State Councillor, said that China wants to help achieve a "political solution" on the Korean peninsula.

The diplomat said that the meeting between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in had made possible an opportunity for a political resolution to issues between the two Koreas, the report said.

China supports ending a state of war between the two countries, North Korea shifting to economic development, and resolving North Korea’s concerns about security during denuclearization, Wang said.

"China is willing to strengthen communication with North Korea and continue to play a positive role in seeking a political solution to the Korean peninsula issue," Wang said, Reuters reported.

On April 29, The New York Times reported that a South Korean spokesman said Kim would give up nuclear weapons for a promise that the U.S. would not invade North Korea.
