China’s top diplomat to visit North Korea

China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi will visit North Korea on Wednesday and Thursday at the invitation of North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kan said on Monday.

The visit followed the 3rd inter-Korean summit, in which the two signed the historic Panmunjom Joint Statement. Seoul and Pyongyang pledged to issue a declaration to end the war this year, confirm the goal of nuclear disarmament on the Korean peninsula, and promote trilateral negotiations including the two Koreans and the US, or a 4-party negotiation mechanism, including China. They said these efforts aim to advance to the signing of a peace agreement, to end the war on the Korean peninsula, and to build a solid and long-lasting peace.
