Beijing, Nov 24 (ANI): Concerned with North Korea’s advancement in it’s nuclear enrichment programme, China has reportedly urged all parties concerned to re-start the Six-Party Talks at the earliest possible date.

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei made these comments while speaking about his country’s concerns on the reported 2,000 centrifuges in operation in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).

“It has always been China’s firm policy to realize denuclearization on the Peninsula through negotiation. Currently, the most urgent task is to restart the Six-Party Talks at the earliest possible date,” Xinhua quoted Hong Lei, as saying.

Lei said China hoped that every concerned nation would work together to return the North Korea nuclear issue back to the path of negotiations, properly handle the concerns of related parties within the framework of the Six-Party Talks and implement various targets set in the September 19 Joint Statement.

Earlier, some American scientists had expressed shock after visiting North Korea’s Yongbyon nuclear facility, saying that a row of centrifuges have been designed to enrich uranium. (ANI)
