A Chinese top lawmaker Li Zhanshu has expressed confidence that neighbouring North Korea and the United States will implement their nuclear summit agreement.
Li and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un were together during Pyongyang’s 70th anniversary parade on Sunday.
Concise News understands that Li was sent by President Xi Jinping to attend the anniversary.
He said that China was committed to the goal of denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, the Xinhua news agency said.
“We have high regards of the efforts the DPRK has made towards regional peace and stability,” Li was quoted as saying.
Xinhua said Li also conveyed his hope that North Korea and the United States could implement the outcome of the June summit between Kim and President Donald Trump in Singapore and work to preserve peaceful talks.
Trump and Kim agreed to work towards the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, but there has been little movement since.
The US President recently accused Beijing, North Korea’s key ally, of complicating Washington’s relationship with Pyongyang.
