On Thursday, China’s foreign minister Wang Yi called on the U.S. and North Korea to hold diplomatic talks as soon as possible.
“History tells us that whenever tensions over the Korean peninsula subside, the situation will be clouded by various interferences,” Wang said in Beijing.
“We have now again come to a crucial moment for testing whether the parties involved are truly sincere in resolving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.”
“The United States and North Korea must engage in dialogue as soon as possible,” Wang added.
