Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Tuesday called on the leaders of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the United States to reach basic consensus on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and establishing a peace mechanism.

Wang told reporters that the world is focused on the ongoing meeting between DPRK's top leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump in Singapore.

Noting the past confrontations between the two countries for more than half a century, Wang said it was of great and positive significance that the two leaders sit together and have equal dialogue, which was making new history.

China welcomed and supported the meeting, which was a goal that China had always expected to achieve, Wang said.

"We hope that the two leaders will work to eliminate barriers, build mutual trust, overcome difficulties, and reach basic consensus and make substantive progress in promoting denuclearization and establishment of a peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula," he said.

Wang called on relevant parties to make efforts on these goals, stressing that China would continue to play a constructive role.
