International Community Stresses Peaceful Solution to Korean Nuclear Issue

International Community Stresses  Peaceful Solution to Korean Nuclear Issue

BEIJING/MANILA - Following the adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution targeting Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programs, major players involved in the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue have renewed their call for a peaceful solution to the issue.
The renewed call for a solution to the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue by peaceful means was made mainly during bilateral interactions or on multilateral occasion.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini exchanged views on the current situation in the Korean Peninsula, on the sidelines of a recent gathering of foreign ministers from the Southeastern Asian nations and their partner countries in the Philippine capital city of Manila. The UN Security Council resolution regarding the Korean Peninsula should be implemented in a comprehensive and full way, Wang said.
China’s “double suspension” proposal, which requires the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to suspend its missile and nuclear activities in exchange for the suspension of large-scale U.S.-South Korean military drills, can deal with the most urgent safety concerns of various parties and cut the vicious circle in the current situation, providing a breakthrough to resume peace talks, Wang said.
