BEIJING, April 1. /TASS/. Chinese President Xi Jinping called on Thursday for the resumption of the six-party talks (China, Japan, North Korea, Russia, South Korea and the United States) on the Korean Peninsula’s nuclear problem settlement. He made this statement at a meeting with South Korean President Park Geun-hye on the sidelines of the fourth Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, DC.
"Beijing stands ready to make constructive efforts for resuming dialogue within the framework of the six-party talks. The six-party talks, which involve South Korea, the DPRK, China, the United States, Russia and Japan, have been stalled since late 2008," the Xinhua news agency reported.
According to the agency, during a meeting with US President Barack Obama, President Xi Jinping said that "all parties concerned should fully and strictly carry out UN resolutions on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea."
The UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2270 on toughening sanctions against North Korea in response to Pyongyang's nuclear test and launch of a rocket with a satellite. According to the resolution text, "the Council decided that Pyongyang should not supply, sell or transfer coal, iron, iron ore, gold, titanium ore, vanadium ore, and rare earth minerals, and that all States should prohibit their nationals from procuring such materials. By other terms, it decided that all States should prevent the sale or supply of aviation fuel - including aviation gasoline, naphtha-type jet fuel, kerosene-type jet fuel, and kerosene-type rocket fuel - whether or not originating in their own territory, to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea." In addition, the document introduces sanctions against the DPRK banking sector, mandatory inspections of goods and targeted measures against persons and entities associated with the North Korean nuclear and missile programs.
