SEOUL, July 1. /ITAR-TASS reporter Vladimir Kutakhov /. Today, a meeting between DPR Foreign Affairs Minister Pak Ui Chun and his Chinese colleague Wang Yi was held on the sidelines of the regional Security Affairs Summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations /ASEAN/ that takes place in Brunei. This was reported today by one of the members of the South Korean diplomatic delegation.

“The Ministers have held bilateral negotiations in the hotel today,” he noted

The foreign affairs ministers of the two countries proceeded to the Empire hotel, ignoring the numerous questions from reporters. It hasn’t been reported on any details of the meeting, including the questions discussed, yet.

Although China remains Pyongyang's main source of economic aid and diplomatic support, but after the third nuclear test held in February by North Korea there has been some tension in the relations between the two countries, stresses the Yonhap news agency.

Seoul and Washington urge Beijing to step up pressure on Pyongyang to force it to give up nuclear weapons programs.
