The settlement of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula is taking a step in the right direction, Wang Yi, Chinese foreign minister, told the media on Thursday.
The key issue next is that all parties should put the nuclear issue of the Korean Peninsula into the dialogue.

China suggests the US and DPRK conduct a dialogue as soon as possible to actively build a peace mechanism on this key issue, Wang said.
Creating secure relations through equal synergy to resolve problems among all parties including North Korea has been China’s consistent position and the goal of the United Nations Security Council’s resolution, Wang stressed.
China has stood for and actively promoted the settlement of the Korean Peninsula issue by all relevant parties through dialogue and consultation and maintained that all relevant parties should enhance understanding and build mutual trust through contact.
Even though the road ahead may be bumpy, now is a crucial window for all parties to solve the nuclear issue on the peninsula. All parties should give priority to the security of the peninsula. China will make efforts to make bilateral and multilateral contacts as soon as possible, Wang added.
