President Park Geun-hye called for the Chinese leader to help persuade Pyongyang back to the negotiating table, Cheong Wa Dae said on March 20.

President Park was quoted as saying during a telephone conversation she had with Chinese President Xi Jinping, “Seoul will firmly respond to any provocations by North Korea, but if the North makes the right decision, Seoul will improve inter-Korean ties through the Korean Peninsula trust-building process,” told presidential spokeswoman Kim Haing.

President Park urged the Chinese leader to “closely cooperate together in order to realize common goals of the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and Northeast Asia,” according to the presidential spokeswoman.

“Peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula is also important for China,” President Xi Jinping was quoted as saying by Cheong Wa Dae. “Beijing will make effort with South Korea and strengthen communication with Seoul in order to achieve peace and prosperity and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
