Beijing, Sept 1 (ANI): China's special envoy for Korean peninsula affairs Wu Dawei, who is on a visit to Japan, has said that Beijing plans to put forward "new proposals" to the countries involved in the six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear disarmament.
Wu, who chairs the six-party talks involving Democratic People's Republic of Korea, South Korea, China, Japan, Russia and the United States, said that China needs to discuss the proposal with these member states and wants to hear their views about it, Xinhua reports.
Wu made his comments after meeting with Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada, but did not elaborate on what measures would be proposed by China to bring Pyongyang back to the negotiations, which have been suspended since December 2009.
Japan reportedly agreed to China's proposal, saying that the stability and peace of the Korean Peninsula were in the interest of all parties concerned, and vowed to continue to push forward the six-party talks.
Both sides promised to work and restart the stalled negotiation as soon as possible. (ANI)
