The Democratic People's Republic of Korea has promised to maintain communication with China on resuming Six-Party Talks.
DPRK Foreign Minister, Pak Ui Chun, made the remarks in a meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Yang Jiechi, on the sidelines of the ASEAN ministerial meeting in Hanoi.
China and the DPRK vowed to fully implement important consensus reached by leaders of the two countries, expand economic and trade cooperation and advance China-DPRK ties. Meanwhile, a DPRK spokesman said that the joint military drill by the US and South Korea poses a threat to Asia.
Ri Tong-Il, Spokesman, DPRK Delegation, said, "It is a great threat to the Korean peninsula and also the region of Asia as a whole. It is especially a violation of the spirit of the statement of the United Nations Security Council meeting. It called for efforts restraint and also a settlement of pending issues through direct dialogue and negotiation through a peaceful manner, so it is against this violation."
