|Wang Yi: The Day when the Peninsula Is Denuclearized Should Also Be the Day when Its Peace Mechanism Is Established|
On September 21, 2017 local time, Foreign Minister Wang Yi expressed in his speech at the General Debate of the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly that the day when the Peninsula is denuclearized should also be the day when its peace mechanism is established.
Wang Yi expressed that we urge the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) not to go any further in the dangerous direction. We call on the US to truly honor its "Four Nos" commitment toward the DPRK, and we urge all relevant parties to play a constructive role in easing tensions. There is still hope for peace, and we must not give up. Negotiation is the only way out and deserves all-out efforts. Parties should meet each other half way by addressing each other's legitimate concerns. China believes that the day when the Peninsula is denuclearized should also be the day when its peace mechanism is established.
Wang Yi pointed out that China has always been a force for peace. We have made unremitting efforts for peaceful resolution of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula. No matter how the situation evolves, no matter how long it takes, and no matter what difficulties lie ahead, China will remain committed to the goal of denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, stick to the direction of dialogue and negotiation and firmly uphold regional peace and stability.
