U.S., China Vow to Restart North Korea Talks
BEIJING (TheStreet) -- The U.S. and China Sunday vowed to work together to restart talks with North Korea aimed at stopping its nuclear weapons program, according to published media reports.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with top Chinese officials Saturday to discuss a range of issues.
A top goal was enlisting the support of Beijing in controlling North Korea, which in recent months has issued threats of military attacks against the U.S., South Korea and Japan and conducted nuclear weapon and missile tests.
China's State Councilor Yang Jiechi, said Beijing would work with the U.S. to restart disarmament talks with North Korea, The Wall Street Journal reported.But China also cautioned Washington and its allies against confronting the North Korean regime of Kim Jong Un in an overtly aggressive way, the Journal added. "China is firmly committed to upholding peace and stability and advancing the denuclearization process on the Korean peninsula," Mr. Yang said Saturday, the Journal said. "We maintain that the issue should be handled and resolved peacefully through dialogue and consultation."
