Swiss say ready to facilitate US-North Korea talks

South Korean senior officials left for the US on Thursday to brief US President Donald Trump and his staff, likely to include Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, on the outcomes of their recent trip to North Korea.

The easing in the Korean Peninsula conflict shows that China's "suspension-for-suspension" plan has worked, Yi said. "On March 6, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang issued a statement saying that" China always supports the efforts made by the DPRK and ROK to improve their relations", referring to the formal names of North Korea (the Democratic People's Republic of Korea) and South Korea (the Republic of Korea).

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization has a "bounden duty to maintain peace and stability in our region and beyond", Wang told reporters at a news conference held on the fringes of the ceremonial legislature's annual meeting.

Wang, meanwhile, expressed satisfaction with improvements in relations between China and Japan, saying Beijing welcomes Tokyo's recent "positive policy" toward China.

As a step to alleviate security concerns, Wang has proposed a "double suspension" approach, where North Korea would suspend its nuclear and missile activities in exchange for the United Sates and the South suspending their joint military drills.

China "fully commends and supports" the steps taken by the two countries and urges the US and North Korea, "to engage in dialogue sooner rather than later" and move to set up a peace-establishing mechanism, Yi said.

Neutral Switzerland is ready to facilitate talks between North Korea and the United States, the Swiss foreign ministry said on Friday.

China will host the SCO summit in the port of Qingdao in June. It would be the first face-to-face encounter between the two countries' leaders.

Wang ended his comments by calling for all sides to take up their "political courage" and make a "political decision" to pursue dialogue as quickly as possible.

He said China will continue to resolve the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and negotiations.
