News Story: China reiterates call for talks on Korean Peninsula issues

BEIJING, April 12 (Xinhua) -- China on Wednesday again expressed the expectation that all parties should work together to return to negotiations about Korean Peninsula nuclear issues at an early date.

At a daily briefing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said that China had noted that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recently said regime change in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is not an objective for the United States.

Lu said that China also is in favor of the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, adding that China's stance is consistent that denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula should be achieved through talks and peaceful means.
