North Korea seen 'cautious' in announcing stance over upcoming summits: Seoul

North Korea seen 'cautious' in announcing stance over upcoming summits: Seoul

"We are very grateful to China for its consistent position", he said.

By way of geography, its growing influence and established interest on the Korean Peninsula, China "was bound to play an important role in promoting denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in particular and shaping the geopolitical order in Northeast Asia in general", Cheng wrote.

Chung renewed Moon's invitation for Xi to visit Seoul.

A location has not been decided for the North Korea-U.S. summit while Kim Jong Un and Moon will meet at the truce village of Panmunjom straddling the border between the two Koreas.

Xi made the comments during a meeting with South Korean National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong, who was sent to share the outcome of his recent trips to North Korea and the United States.

"As long as all sides can focus on the fundamental goals of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and peace and stability, a day of the melting of the hard ice and the blossom of the spring flowers will be seen on the Korean Peninsula", he said.

Yang touted the "positive changes" on the Korean peninsula.

Chung announced last week that Trump said he would meet Kim by May "to achieve permanent denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula.

The situation on the Korean peninsula is a near "miracle", Japan's foreign minister said on Monday, according to a spokesman of South Korea's presidential Blue House, referring to a recent breakthrough on talks with North Korea.

Xi did not say more about the North Korean nuclear crisis, but he said China's relations with South Korea have "maintained a good momentum of improvement".

He said Japan, South Korea and the US should discuss details of their strategy ahead of the planned talks between the USA and North Korea "in order to make the dialogue a meaningful one".

North Korea has yet to respond over the possibility of a summit with US President Donald Trump, Seoul has revealed.

Yang said China supports the current diplomatic efforts and added that the nuclear standoff with the North should be resolved peacefully.

The dramatic turn of events follows a flaring of tensions up until late previous year as the North continued its nuclear and missile tests despite strong condemnation from the global community.
