Seoul, March 30 (IANS) Beijing hopes an upcoming summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, and another one between Kim and US President Donald Trump will yield significant results, China's top diplomat said here on Friday.
Chinese State Councillor Yang Jiechi said during a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha that China backs the planned inter-Korean summit on April 27 and a summit between Trump and Kim in May, and believes they would help ease tension on the Korean Peninsula, Efe news reported.
Yang said China hopes to maintain strong communication with South Korea and work together to continue to address the issue.
The meeting in April would be the first inter-Korean summit after 2007, while the one in May would be the first-ever summit between the leaders of North Korea and the US after seven decades of conflict and 25 years of failed negotiations.
