China, ROK reaffirm commitment to dialogue, N. Korean denuclearization

Xi Jinping offers support for inter-Korean dialogue and an improvement in relations

The Presidents of China and South Korea - Xi Jinping and Moon Jae-in - reiterated their nations' commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula via peaceful means following a high level summit meeting in Beijing on Thursday.

The two leaders met to discuss a variety of issues, including North Korea's continued development of its ballistic missile and nuclear programs, just two weeks after the DPRK fired its longest range intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).
