UN Resolution On DPRK Expected To Be Adopted In Coming Days: Chinese FM

Important progress has been made in talks on a UN resolution on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and it is expected to be adopted in the coming days, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said here Tuesday.

Once the resolution is implemented, it will effectively curb DPRK’s nuclear program, Wang said at a joint press conference with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

“We do not accept the DPRK’s nuclear missile program and we do not recognize the DPRK as a nuclear weapons state,” Wang said.

The top Chinese diplomat also emphasized that the resolution itself can not fundamentally solve the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.

“To solve the peninsular nuclear issue, we need to return to dialogues and negotiations,” he said.
