Mar. 4, 2019 -- Washington on Friday briefed Beijing on the Hanoi summit over a phone call, saying it will remain in contact with Pyongyang.
United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made the commitment during the phone conversation with Yang Jiechi, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.
Pompeo said the US will continue to seek to resolve the Korean Peninsula issue through dialogue and negotiation.
The US appreciated China playing a positive role on the issue and would like to maintain communication and coordination with China, he said.
Yang, who is also director of the Office of the Foreign Affairs Commission of the CPC Central Committee, said that the Korean Peninsula issue is complicated and cannot be solved overnight.
China hopes the US and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea will be patient and meet each other half way to unremittingly advance peace talks and strive for new achievements, Yang said.
China will continue to play a constructive role on the issue, he added.
