BEIJING (AP) — China has called for joint efforts to denuclearize the Korea Peninsula following reports that North Korea may be restarting a plutonium nuclear reactor.
"To achieve denuclearization and to maintain peace and stability is what China has been advocating," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said Thursday at a daily briefing. "It takes efforts from all sides."
A U.S. research institute said Wednesday that a recent satellite image appears to show North Korea is restarting its 5-megawatt reactor at the Nyongbyon nuclear facility, which was shuttered in 2007 under the terms of a six-nation disarmament agreement.
U.S. special envoy Glyn Davis has traveled to Beijing this week to discuss the nuclear issue with China. Hong said all sides should work to resume the six-party talks.
