China pledges to work with international community on North Korean issue

Chinese Vice Commerce Minister Qian Keming said China will continue to coordinate with the international community to promote the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, and is also willing to work with the US for more balanced development of their bilateral trade.

Qian's remark came on Monday after US President Donald Trump said China has done nothing to deal with the North Korean issue. At a press briefing in Beijing, Qian said North Korea's nuclear tests and trade relations between China and the US are two separate issues and should not be discussed together. He reaffirmed that China has no responsibility for settling Pyongyang's nuclear issue and that Washington and Pyongyang need to take measures to ease the tensions.
