China has sent its top nuclear envoy Wu Dawei to North Korea to discuss the resumption of six party talks on the North's nuclear weapons program and relieve tension on the Korean Peninsula following the sinking of the South Korean Navy corvette Cheonan.
China's Foreign Ministry said on its website on Thursday that Wu "visited North Korea from Monday to Wednesday to discuss resuming the nuclear talks and exchange opinions on peace and stability on the peninsula."
The ministry said Wu met one-to-one with senior officials including Foreign Minister Pak Ui-chun and chief nuclear negotiator Kim Kye-gwan, as well as Kim Yong-il, head of international affairs at the North Korean Worker's Party.
