ANI Washington DC [United States]
US Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo and Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, in a telephonic conversation, have discussed denuclearisation of Korean Peninsula and bilateral cooperation among other things.
The two sides discussed "ongoing efforts to achieve our shared goal of the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula."
"The Secretary noted that the DPRK has a bright future if it denuclearizes and emphasizes the continued importance of full enforcement of all relevant UN Security Council resolutions related to North Korea, especially as they relate to North Korea's illegal exports of coal and imports of refined petroleum through UN-prohibited ship-to-ship transfers," US State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert, said, in a statement.
The two dignitaries also discussed ongoing cooperation on the recent health-related incident in Guangzhou city, China, as well as other issues in the bilateral relationship.
Earlier on June 28, Pompeo spoke with Foreign Minister Kang of the Republic of Korea to discuss next steps on DPRK engagement after the historic Singapore summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un.
