All parties to the six-nation negotiations on the nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula should reckon with each other's concerns, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi told Interfax shortly before his visit to Russia.

"The nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula is complicated and has a long history. We see as a way out the approval of a package of measures which will take into account concerns of every interested side in an ultimate, comprehensive and measured manner," he said.

The resolution of the nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula is important for the provision of peace and stability on the peninsula and in Northeast Asia at large and meets the interests of all sides, the minister observed.

"It is a common duty to find this solution. China strictly adheres to denuclearization, peace and stability on the Peninsula and resolution of this problem through dialogue and consultations," the diplomat emphasized.

Considering the circumstances, the interested sides should work together, meet each other halfway and prepare the ground for resuming the six-nation negotiations and bringing the nuclear problem of the peninsula back to the format of a sustainable, irreversible and effective dialogue, he said. "The same as before, China and Russia will be maintaining close contacts, coordination and interaction in this area," the foreign minister underscored.
