2016/02/13

On February 12, 2016 local time, Foreign Minister Wang Yi gave an exclusive interview to Reuters in Munich, Germany. In answering the question concerning China's policies regarding situation on the Korean Peninsula, Wang Yi expressed that as a close neighbor to the Korean Peninsula and a country which shoulders important responsibility for the stability of the Korean Peninsula, China upholds the following points:

Firstly, under no circumstances could the Korean Peninsula be nuclearized, whether the DPRK or the ROK, self-produced or introduced and deployed. Secondly, there is no military solution to the issue. If there is war or turbulence on the Peninsula it is not acceptable for China. Thirdly, China's legitimate national security interests must be effectively maintained and safeguarded.

Wang Yi stated that we will continue our cooperation with the international community to steadfastly push forward the process of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. The focus of the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue lies on the US and the DPRK. We would like to urge both parties to sit down and hold talks to settle each other' s reasonable concerns and finally achieve a goal that every side accepts.
