Will China prompt the lifting of sanctions against the DPRK as soon as possible? Ministry of foreign affairs response

Erivan Pehin Joseph, Minister of foreign affairs and trade of Brunei, will be invited to pay an official visit to China on from June 13th to 14th.

During his second minister's visit to China, the State Councilor and Minister of foreign affairs of Wang Yi will talk to him and exchange views on the Chinese relations and the regional and international issues of mutual concern.

The current Chinese relationship has been developing well. Hassanal of Brunei Sultan successfully made a state visit to China last September. President Xi Jinping and he made top-level design on the development of Chinese relations. The two sides to build a "The Belt and Road" as an opportunity, pragmatic cooperation in various fields has achieved remarkable results. This year is the 5th anniversary strategic cooperative relationship between Chinese and the strategic partnership between China and ASEAN 15th anniversary. China is willing to strengthen communication with Wen Fang through this visit, and promote the continuous development of Chinese relations.

Q: it is reported that today, the DPRK US leaders' meeting signed a joint statement on achieving peace on the peninsula. How do you comment on this? What role will the Chinese side play in achieving peace on the peninsula?

A: the international community is highly concerned about the meeting between the DPRK and the US leaders in Singapore. At noon today, Wang Yi, State Councilor and Minister of foreign affairs, made a statement in this regard. The State Councilor Wang Yi pointed out that the two countries of the United States and the United States are antagonistic to each other for more than half a century. The highest leaders of the two countries can sit together and engage in an equal dialogue. This is of great significance and positive significance in itself. It is the creation of a new history. China welcomes and supports this, because this is the goal China has been looking forward to and worked hard for.

The Chinese side hopes to exclude interference from the leaders of the United States and the United States, establish mutual trust and overcome difficulties, and to reach a basic consensus on promoting and realizing the denuclearization of the peninsula, promoting and establishing a peace mechanism on the peninsula, and taking a substantial step. We hope that all parties concerned can make efforts to this end, and China will continue to play a constructive role in this regard.

China is paying close attention to the development of the situation. When the situation becomes clearer, China will respond formally at the first time.

Q: first, will chairman Kim Jeong-eun return to Beijing on the way to the north? Second, State Councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi said today that no one can doubt China's unique and important role in the Peninsula issue. We know that the Chinese side has played a long-term role in the Peninsular Issue. Chairman Kim Jeong-eun has visited Beijing and Dalian recently. Can you tell us how the Chinese side played a unique and important role in the Peninsula issue by holding the two meetings?

A: Recently, chairman Kim Jeong-eun visited China for the two time and met with President Xi Jinping. As regards the meeting between the two sides, the Chinese version of the draft is very detailed and we should all remember it.

On the Peninsula issue, China has always insisted on achieving denuclearization of the peninsula, upholding peace and stability on the peninsula, and persisting in resolving relevant issues through dialogue and consultation. China has put forward the idea of "double pause" initiative and "two track progress". Facts have proved that the "double pause" initiative put forward by the Chinese side has been realized and the development of the current situation is also moving along the direction of "double track progress".

The realization of the meeting between the DPRK and the US is precisely the direction China has long been looking forward to and working hard for. We have always called on both sides of the United States and the United States as the main parties to the issue of the peninsula. We should carry out direct dialogue, establish mutual trust, and resolve problems through peaceful means such as political and diplomatic. China's work on ideas and initiatives and intensive contacts with all parties should be said to have played a positive and constructive role in the development of the peninsula.

Question: is chairman Kim Jeong-eun stopping in Beijing? Does he stop for refueling? Meeting with China? Or other purposes?

A: I answered similar questions yesterday. My answer today is that CAAC will continue to provide relevant services to the DPRK delegation.

Q: the Chinese side has said that sanctions against the DPRK are not an end. Now, with the easing of the situation and the changes taking place, will China prompt the lifting of sanctions against the DPRK as soon as possible? It is reported that there are signs that China is relaxing relevant sanctions. How do you respond to this?

A: first of all, Kaizong Akiyoshi, I would like to reiterate again that China has always conscientiously and strictly enforced all the resolutions adopted by the Security Council and faithfully fulfilled our international obligations, which is very clear.

Second, as to the question of lifting the sanctions against the DPRK, the relevant resolutions adopted by the Security Council stipulate that the sanctions should be adjusted according to the compliance of the DPRK and the implementation of the resolution, including the suspension or the lifting of the relevant sanctions. China has consistently held that sanctions are not an end in themselves, and the action of the Security Council should support, cooperate with the current diplomatic dialogue and the peninsula's nuclear free efforts to promote the political settlement process on the peninsula.

Q: the Ministry of foreign affairs released the news of President Morales's upcoming visit to China this morning. Can you introduce President Morales's visit to China? What are China's expectations for the development of Sino glass relations?

A: this morning, the Chinese side announced the upcoming visit to Bolivia by President Morales of the Republic of China. This is president Morales's fourth visit to China and his second state visit to China. During this visit, President Xi Jinping will hold a welcome ceremony and a welcome banquet for president Morales. The two heads of state will hold talks and jointly attend the signing ceremony of the cooperation document. Premier Li Keqiang and chairman of Li chancellor will meet with President Morales respectively.

In recent years, Sino British relations have made considerable progress. The mutual political mutual trust between the two sides has deepened, economic and trade cooperation has been steadily advancing. The exchanges and cooperation in the fields of culture, education, sports and science and technology have been fruitful. Keeping close cooperation in international affairs has become a model for South South cooperation with equal treatment and solidarity and mutual assistance. I believe that President Morales's visit will achieve fruitful results and open up a new chapter in the development of Sino British relations.

Question: first, it is reported that two aircraft of the China International Airlines are flying to Singapore, one of which is a plane on which Chairman Kim Jeong-eun went to Singapore. Will China invite chairman Kim Jeong-eun to visit China and meet with President Xi Jinping during his return? Second, what channels do China plan to understand the meeting between the DPRK and the US?

A: I have just answered the question about aircraft. I can repeat that, at the request of the DPRK, CAAC will continue to provide relevant services to the DPRK delegation. As for other details, please pay close attention to the development of the situation and everything will be clear.

On the second issue, as an important part of Peninsular affairs, China has always maintained close communication and coordination with all parties concerned.

Question: at present, has China invited chairman Kim Jeong-eun to visit China?

A: you often come to our press conference. We should know that if there are important high-level exchanges, we will publish the news in time.

Q: last week, Secretary of state Pompeio said that he would visit China after the meeting of leaders of the US and North Korea this week. Can China confirm it?

A: you should notice that the US State Department has sent a message.

China welcomes US Secretary of state Pompeio's visit to China in June 14th. If there is any further information, we will release it in time.

Q: first, when the Secretary of state will visit China, will he meet with any Chinese official? Second, yesterday, Liang Tianqi, a spokesman for Hongkong's "local Democratic Front", was sentenced to 6 years in prison for the crime of riots. Former governor Peng Dingkang called the law a violation of international human rights and was abused. Members of the British Parliament also said that the Hongkong SAR government used this law to intimidate the "Democratic Movement" and weaken Hongkong's freedom of speech. What is the response of the Chinese side to this?

A: on the first question, as I said just now, China welcomes US Secretary of state Pompeio's visit to China in June 14th. As for the specific issues you are concerned about, the two sides are maintaining close communication on the specific arrangements for Peng's visit to China. If further information is available, we will issue it in time.

On the second question, Hongkong is a special administrative region of China and Hongkong affairs are entirely internal affairs of China. We firmly oppose any external forces interfering in Hongkong affairs and the administration of justice in the Special Administrative Region. As for the specific case of the person you are concerned about, please ask the Department concerned. This is not a diplomatic problem.

Q: it is reported that in today's meeting, the DPRK leaders agreed to work together to achieve the long-term peace and stability of the peninsula. What kind of security will China hope to provide to the DPRK? Does China think that the United States should suspend or cancel joint military exercises with South Korea? Do you want the US side to reduce the number of US troops in Korea?

A: China has always been firmly committed to the realization of the denuclearization of the peninsula. At the same time, it is necessary to pay attention to and resolve the legitimate security concerns of the DPRK in the process of promoting the denuclearization of the peninsula. At present, the political settlement process of the Peninsula issue is moving along the direction of "double track progress" proposed by China. With the positive progress made in the process of denuclearization, relevant parties should also take positive measures in establishing the peninsula peace mechanism and resolving the legitimate security concerns of the DPRK. China is willing to continue to play a constructive role in this regard.

As I said just now, the Chinese side is closely following the development of the situation. After the situation becomes clearer, it will respond formally at the first time.

Q: it is reported that in June 12th, the Taipei Office of the United States Taiwan Association held its opening ceremony. Royce, assistant secretary of the State Council for education and cultural affairs, attended the meeting. How do you comment on this?

A: we have expressed serious concern about the reports and have made solemn representations to the US side.

It must be pointed out that the United States, with any pretext to send officials to Taiwan, seriously violates the one China principle and the three United States joint communiqu es, interfering in China's internal affairs and causing a negative impact on Sino US relations.

We urge the US side to abide by the commitments made to the Chinese side on the Taiwan issue and correct the wrong practices so as not to undermine Sino US relations and peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits.

Q: Wang Yi, State Councilor and foreign minister, and you mentioned the establishment of a peace mechanism on the peninsula. The current concern of the international community is the conversion of the armistice agreement into a peace agreement. What time does the Chinese side think the right time to sign the peace agreement is?

A: as I have just said, the current political settlement process of the Peninsula issue is moving along the direction of "double track progress" proposed by China. With the positive progress made in the process of denuclearization, relevant parties should also take positive measures in establishing the peninsula peace mechanism and resolving the legitimate security concerns of the DPRK.

As an important party to the peninsula affairs and the parties to the armistice agreement, China will be responsible and obliged to play its due role in the process of the conversion of the peninsula and the transformation of the mechanism. We will continue to take an active part in the peninsula peace process and make due contributions to the denuclearization of the peninsula, the establishment of a peace mechanism on the peninsula and the maintenance of peace and stability on the peninsula.

Q: China hopes to continue to play a constructive role in the peninsula peace process. Can you make a specific introduction? For example, will China participate in the negotiation process of the peninsula peace agreement? Will it be added to the denuclearization verification? Will it provide security for the DPRK?

A: I mentioned it just now. I can repeat it. As an important party in Peninsular affairs and a contracting party to the armistice agreement, China will be responsible.
