Wang Yi the Korean nuclear issue cannot be solved
Wang Yi: If the parties have continued dialogue and stay the course, the day will come when the denuclearization of the peninsula will become a reality.
As complicated factors are at play in the Korean nuclear issue, one cannot expect it to be solved overnight. All parties need to have reasonable expectations. One shouldn't set the bar too high at the outset or make unilateral, unrealistic demands.
Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met the press Friday morning on the sidelines of the second session of the 13th National People's Congress. He talked about the Korean nuclear issue.
The key to solving the issue lies in not being a prisoner of history and breaking the cycle of mistrust. It will be useful to work out a general roadmap for denuclearization and the establishment of a peace regime. Based on the roadmap and in a phased and synchronized fashion, specific, interlinked and mutually reinforcing steps may be identified, which will be taken in sequence, starting with the easier ones, and monitored in a way agreed to by the parties.
