"China has also noticed that both the USA and the DPRK have aspired for a suitable atmosphere or suitable conditions for dialogue. We believe tackling their respective concerns of most imminence helps serve as the breakthrough under the current circumstance. The double-suspension as China has put forward aims to create conditions for promoting all related parties to take difficult but historically significant first steps. The double-track can then work in to help denuclearize and form a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to help solve security concerns, and realize lasting peace and stability. We hope related parties including the USA and the DPRK should seriously study these initiatives and respond positively."

Storyline


China on Friday called on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the United States to make political decisions and take their first steps toward dialogue in solving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue as soon as possible.

Hua Chunying, spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, made the remarks at a press briefing when commenting on a signal sent out by the USA to the DPRK.

While meeting a Republic of Korea presidential envoy, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly said Thursday that the USA intends no regime change, no invasion, no change of social system in pursuit of the DPRK abandoning its nuclear tests so as to create an appropriate atmosphere for dialogue.

"We've noticed that the USA, DPRK and ROK have all released signals of their willingness to solve problems through dialogue and consultation. We think these are positive signs worth being taken in earnest by all parties concerned. As parties directly involved, the USA and the DPRK should make political decisions as soon as possible and to demonstrate their sincerity and make constructive efforts to resume dialogue as soon as possible by taking practical actions," said Hua.

The spokesperson said that China has also noticed that it requires a suitable atmosphere or suitable conditions for both the DPRK and the USA to conduct dialogue. Therefore China thinks to solve the most pressing concerns of both parties in the current situation will be conductive to finding a breakthrough for dialogue and consultation.

The suspension-for-suspension proposal China has put forward aims to create conditions for promoting all related parties to take difficult but historically significant first steps. The dual-track can then work in to help denuclearization and form a peace mechanism for the peninsula, to help solve security concerns, and realize lasting peace and stability. "We hope related parties including the USA and the DPRK should seriously study these initiatives and respond positively," added the Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson.

The suspension-for-suspension proposal was put forward by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi to defuse the looming crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

As a starting step, the DPRK may suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the suspension of large-scale USA-ROK military exercises, Wang proposed.
