China welcomes joint statement by two Koreas

BEIJING (Reuters) - China welcomed on Friday a joint statement by North and South Korea after their leaders pledged to work for the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and declare an official end to the 1950-53 Korean War.

China hoped all parties can maintain the momentum for dialogue and can jointly promote the political resolution process for the Korean peninsula issue, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

China is willing to keep playing a pro-active role in this regard, it added.
