The security council also urged North Korea to abide by the agreements reached between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during their summit last month, where they agreed to denuclearise the Korean peninsula.
Minister of state for external affairs Gen. (retd.) V.K. Singh already began a crucial two-day visit to North Korea on Tuesday. "Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) continued pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes and its proliferation links pose a grave threat to global peace and stability", a statement from the Ministry of External Affairs had said previous year when North Korea had launched its worldwide Ballistic Missile.
"We support the improvement of North-South [Korean] relations, the promotion of dialogue between North Korea and the USA, denuclearization on the peninsula and North Korea's development of its economy", Xi said.
On Wednesday, North Korea said it might not attend the June 12 summit in Singapore after a joint military exercise between the US and South Korea. This was the first ministerial-level visit from India to North Korea in 20 years.
"Welcoming the friendship group's visit to China, Xi Jinping said that China is attaching very importance to the work to propel the traditional friendship between the two countries sealed in blood to a higher stage as required by the new era", the Korean Central News Agency said in an English report".
China has always advocated that all relevant parties should promote a political settlement of the Korean Peninsula issue through dialogue and consultation, and fully consider the concerns of all, including the DPRK's legitimate security concerns, he said.
After the summit, Kim became the first North Korean leader to step into South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953.
"The two sides chose to explore possibilities of cooperation in areas of mutual interest including vocational education, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, promotion of yoga and traditional medicines", it stated.
Wang, who is also state councilor, reportedly stressed the importance of easing tensions on the peninsula and said the measures North Korea has taken should be acknowledged.
After Kim announced that he will relinquish his nuclear programme and offered to hold talks with US President Donald Trump, scheduled in June, Pyongyang on Wednesday also threatened to abandon the talks if Washington continued to insist on pushing it "into a corner" on nuclear disarmament. In the past year, India had joined the US and allies in "deploring" North Korean nuclear and ballistic missile tests, although it had earlier refrained from such a strong language.
