News Story: China welcomes U.S. role on Korean Peninsula issue - FM spokesman

BEIJING, April 17 (Xinhua) -- The United States is welcome to play a positive role in peacefully resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang on Monday.

"We are willing to work with all parties concerned to achieve denuclearization and safeguard peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula," Lu told a daily press briefing.

Lu made the comments in response to the remarks of U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster on Sunday.

McMaster urged the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to stop destabilizing behavior, saying it was the bottom line of the United States to stop the DPRK developing nuclear weapons and to denuclearize the peninsula.
