China provided a transportation guarantee, after negotiations, for DPRK's leader Kim Jong-un to travel to Vietnam via China, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Lu Kang confirmed on Tuesday at a routine press briefing.

China is looking for the joint effort from Washington and Pyongyang to move closer to a shared target of the Korean Peninsula’s denuclearization and persistent peace and stability, said Lu, when asked about Beijing’s expectations on the forthcoming DPRK-US leader summit in Hanoi.
China also hopes the two leaders take the other side’s concerns seriously during their meeting, added Lu.
Lu also said China is pleased to see the current situation developing in a way that follows China’s suggestions and wishes. “This is the role China is playing and will continue to play,” said Lu.
