|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying's Remarks on the DPRK and the US Resuming Dialogue|
Q: The DPRK's First Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Choe Son Hui said on October 1 that the DPRK and the US will have preliminary contact on October 4 before holding working-level talks on October 5. It is said that the US has confirmed this. I wonder if you have a comment?
A: We have noted the statements from the DPRK and the US on resuming engagement and dialogue soon. China welcomes that. We always support dialogue between the DPRK and the US and a political settlement of the Korean Peninsula issue. Under current circumstances, we hope the two sides will grasp the opportunity and meet each other halfway to strive for positive outcomes from the dialogue.
