Foreign Minister Wang Yi said he had "very in-depth discussions" with visiting US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, and they "made fundamental consensus in some general directions".

During their Saturday talk in Beijing, they exchanged views on issues that included the Korean Peninsula situation.

Speaking to a joint press conference following their talk, Wang said both sides vow to strictly fulfill the relevant resolutions by the United Nations Security Council and they both hope to find ways to restart talks on the issue.

"We are willing to maintain such a kind of dialogue. This is a very important area for cooperation between China and the US," Wang said.

Now the peninsula situation is at another crossroads, heading toward either further tension, deterioration and even conflicts, or breakthroughs in resuming the Six-Party talks, Wang noted.

"Parties, including the US, are hoped to judge the situation with a cool head and make a wise choice," Wang said.
