PYONGYANG, August 30 (Itar-Tass) - China’s special envoy for negotiations on Korean peace settlement, Wu Dawei has finished his visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea where he has held talks with First Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Gye-gwan regarding issues related to the region, Korean Central News Agency said Friday.
One of the problems the sides looked at was a possibility of resumption of six-party talks involving South and North Koreas, Russia, China, the U.S., and Japan.
The negotiating sides attained considerable progress in the field of wrapping up North Korea’s nuclear program in exchange for economic aid and guarantees of security; however, the six-party talks came to a stalemate in 2008 and have been suspended since then due to a worsening of North Korea’s relations with Washington and Seoul.
Chinese Foreign Ministry said earlier Beijing was interested in resuming negotiations in the same format without any prior conditions. Wu Dawei, a former Deputy Foreign Minister was appointed to act as a special envoy to the talks in February 2010.
His activity embraces the problems pertaining to the six-partite talks and other problems existing on the Korean Peninsula.
Beijing is North Korea’s biggest long-term ally and economic partner. China accounted for 88.3% of North Korean external trade in 2012.
