2003/08/29
On August 29, the Beijing six-party talks drew to a close at Diaoyutai State Guesthouse. Chinese Vice-Foreign Minister Wang Yi presided over the talks' closing ceremony, which was attended by various delegations' heads and other representatives.

Summarizing the common grounds shared by various parties and progress made during the talks, Vice Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that the six parties, with sincerity and hope, were here in Beijing discussing peace on the Korean Peninsula. The talks have brought about progress while disagreements still remain. However, all the parties have agreed that the Beijing talks are helpful. Although future talks are not ensured to be always smooth, the six parties might find ways to peacefully solve the Korean nuclear issue, which will lead to lasting peace on the peninsula so long as relevant parties make concerted efforts.

All the parties expressed their gratitude to the Chinese hosts for their important efforts and considerate accommodations facilitating the talks. All the parties said that the Beijing talks have provided an important opportunity for solving the Korean nuclear issue and laying a basis for further talks.
