Dual suspension on Korea issue worked, says Wang Yi
Thursday, March 08, 2018
China says its proposal for a "dual suspension” of North Korean nuclear tests in return for a halt to war games by South Korea and the U.S. has proven successful.
Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday told reporters that the suspension of such activities during the recent Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, showed that China’s approach "was the right prescription for the problem and created basic conditions for the improvement of inter-Korean relations.”
Wang said the Korean Peninsula issue has "finally taken an important step in the right direction.” He said China was now encouraging follow-up measures and called for the U.S. to join in the dialogue "sooner rather than later.”
Wang said Pyongyang’s security concerns should be addressed in return for denuclearization. -AP
