This was stated by Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in his daily news briefing in Beijing.

He said we hope that all sides can conscientiously treat and proactively consider China’s proposal.

The Spokesman said China would welcome relevant parties to put forward proposals that can benefit promotion of a peaceful resolution for the Korean peninsula’s nuclear issue.

China and Russia have proposed that the United States and South Korea stop major military exercises in exchange for North Korea halting its weapons programs.
