Assistant Foreign Minister Kong Xuanyou and Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov of Russia co-chaired the consultation.

The two sides reiterated to stick to the goal of the denuclearization of the Peninsula, called for all parties concerned to actively respond to the joint initiative proposed by China and Russia based on China's "suspension-for-suspension" proposal and "dual track" approach and Russia's step-by-step conception, and urged all parties to go back to the track of dialogue and consultation at an early date.
