VIENNA, June 5 (Xinhua) -- Joint efforts should be made to revitalize the implementation of the Feb. 29 agreement between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the United States over the Korean Peninsular nuclear issue, a senior Chinese diplomat said here on Tuesday.

All the parties concerned should remain calm, exercise restraint and refrain from taking any actions that may escalate the tension in the region, said Cheng Jingye, China's Permanent Representative to the United Nations and other International Organizations in Vienna.

Noting that the implementation of the Feb. 29 agreement has run into difficulties at this moment, Cheng said China is of the view that the agreement is a hard-won and positive outcome achieved under the framework of the six-party talks.

All parties concerned should make a joint effort to seek ways to revitalize the agreement, which is of great significance to maintaining regional peace and stability and achieving denuclearization in the Peninsula, Cheng said.

Cheng made the remarks at the ongoing IAEA Board of Governors meeting at the headquarters of the UN nuclear watchdog.

He also said that it is fundamental that solutions to the various intertwining issues in the Korean Peninsula must be sought through dialogues with a view to solving conflicts and accommodating the concerns of all sides.

Experiences have shown that the six-party talks is an effective mechanism in achieving denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and maintaining peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and in northeast Asia, he added.

The DPRK has said it wasn't obliged to follow the Feb. 29 agreement, as the Unites States had completely breached it with confrontational acts.

In the agreement, the DPRK agreed to impose a moratorium on nuclear tests and long-range missile launches and allow international nuclear inspectors to return to the country. In return, the United States agreed to provide the country with 240,000 tonnes of food aid.
