Geng Shuang, a ministry spokesperson, made the remarks at a regular press conference after the two leaders made a historic handshake and held an unexpected, nearly one-hour talk in the DMZ. 

The two leaders agreed to "resume and push forward productive dialogues for making a new breakthrough in the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.

China supports the resumption of DPRK-US dialogues, said Geng, calling on the relative parties to seize the opportunity and meet each other half way.
