"All the delegates come to the talks with a good political will, that is, to make progress in solving the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue," he said.

"They have made frank, in-depth and pragmatic discussions on how to realize a nuclear-weapon-free peninsula and setting an overall goal of the six-party talks through various forms," Dai said.

Dai said the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue is very complicatedand it is very natural that related parties have differences.

"However, the more complicated the work is, the more significant and more valuable it will be if we deal with it properly," said Dai.

Dai stressed that all the people hope the issue can be peacefully solved through talks and hope the peninsula can have a peaceful development.

The fourth round of the six-party talks moved into the third day Thursday. The delegations from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the United States held one-on-one talks again this morning.

There is still no information whatsoever to indicate how long the ongoing talks will last.
