(Reuters) — China has called upon North Korean and the United States to commit to dialogue and negotiation to address their bilateral tensions and move toward denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

“Under current circumstances, we very much hope that North Korea and the United States would cherish the progress both sides have recently made and maintain the patience and goodwill toward each other to reach that goal,” Lu Kang, spokesperson for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said a news briefing Thursday in Beijing.
