Chinese and South Korean Leaders in Accord on North Korea

South Korean President Park Geun Hye and Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged closer diplomatic and economic ties, called for resuming talks to quell North Korea’s nuclear ambitions and vowed to expand bilateral trade by 140 percent in the next three years.

South Korea and China agree that a nuclear North Korea is “unacceptable under any circumstance” and will work together toward denuclearization of the North and peace and stability on the Korean peninsula, Park said in a joint press conference with Xi yesterday after their summit meeting in Beijing.
