China hopes all parties concerned will make sincere efforts for the early
holding of the next round of six-party talks, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman
Kong Quan said Tuesday in Beijing.
At the regular foreign ministry news briefing, Kong said that after the
Beijing six-party talks, all parties concerned have made clear their stances on
the Korean nuclear issue. He held that all parties still need some time to
further study the issue.
Kong said the Chinese side will as usual make great efforts to advance the
six-party talks, but the joint efforts of other parties are also needed.
