Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has urged multilateral talks on ending North Korea’s nuclear program to resume.

He said on Saturday that the multilateral talks involving China, the United States, Russia, Japan, South Korea and North Korea are still the best way to address the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula.

He made the remarks at a symposium commemorating the 10th anniversary of a joint statement by the six-party talks.

The talks collapsed in 2008, when North Korea refused inspections and declared the deal void.

North Korea conducted a long-range missile launch in late 2012, and another nuclear test in early 2013.

Pyongyang has signalled possible plans to launch a satellite and prepare a nuclear test explosion.
