BEIJING - Glyn Davies, special representative in the US State Department specialising in Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) policy, will visit China on Wednesday, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday.

Spokesman Hong Lei made the remarks at a daily news briefing.

"China has maintained contact with the other members of the six-party talks regarding the current situation on the Korean Peninsula, as well as how to achieve permanent peace there," Hong said.

The six-party talks, a negotiation mechanism that includes the DPRK, the Republic of Korea, the United States, China, Japan and Russia, were launched in 2003 but stalled in December 2008. The DPRK quit the talks in April 2009.
