China Urges to Preserve Atmosphere of Détente on Korean Peninsula

Minister of state (MoS) for external affairs V.K. Singh already began a crucial two-day visit to North Korea on Tuesday. "Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) continued pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes and its proliferation links pose a grave threat to global peace and stability", a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs had said previous year when North Korea had launched its worldwide Ballistic Missile.

Ties between North Korea and China are showing signs of improvement after going through a tough patch for several years caused by the North's defiant advancement of its nuclear and missile programs.

A statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) here said the Minister highlighted the threat from nuclear proliferation, in particular, India's concerns in the context of the proliferation linkages with India's neighbourhood."In response, the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) side emphasised that as a friendly country, DPRK will never allow any action that would create concerns for India's security", the statement added. The North Koreans also briefed Gen. Singh about the recent developments in the Korean peninsula including the peace talks between the two Koreas.

Municipal and provincial party chiefs from North Korea who visited China this week said openly they were there to learn from China's new open economy.

Singh, according to the MEA, held discussions with the Vice-President of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, Kim Yong Dae; foreign minister Ri Yong Ho, and culture minister Pak Chun Nam.

Xi urged them to further develop bilateral relations and hailed the visit as a "concrete measure" resulting from two summits with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

A statement published by the state-run Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) said Pyongyang would never accept economic assistance from the USA in exchange for unilaterally abandoning its nuclear programme.

As for China, the spokesperson said Seoul is cooperating with Beijing at every level, in order for Beijing to continue its constructive role on issues concerning the Korean Peninsula. India and North Korea established formal diplomatic relations in 1973.

China remains North Korea's most important trading partner despite imposing sanctions to try and curb the regime's nuclear ambitions.

In what could indicate more trade and interaction now between the two countries, the MEA said, "The two sides chose to explore possibilities of cooperation in the areas of mutual interest, including vocational education, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, promotion of yoga and traditional medicines".

Foreign Minister Spokesman Lu Kang told reporters that the parties must express sincerity, have good will and guarantee the conditions of the meeting scheduled for June between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump.
