China & US Discuss DPRK-Ukraine Nuclear Issues! (22.2.2022)

A Telephone

On February 22, 2022, China’s State Councillor (and Foreign Minister) Wang Yi (王毅) held a telephone conversation with US Secretary of State Blinken (at the latter’s request) – and exchanged views concerning nuclear issues pertaining to the Ukraine and the Korean Peninsula.

Blinken briefed on the current situation in Ukraine from the US position. Wang Yi said that China is concerned about the development of the situation in Ukraine. China’s position on the Ukraine issue has been consistent. The legitimate security concerns of any country should be respected, and the purposes and principles of the UN Charter should be upheld. The development of the Ukraine issue so far, is closely related to the delay in the effective implementation of the new Minsk Agreement. China will continue to make contact with all parties concerned – based upon the merits of the matter. As the situation in Ukraine is getting worse – China once again calls upon all parties to exercise restraint, recognize the importance of implementing the principle of indivisibility of security, ease the situation and resolve differences through dialogue and negotiation.

Blinken also briefed upon the latest situation concerning US-DPRK relations. Wang Yi said that the core of the Korean Peninsula nuclear situation is the (historical) issue that exists between the US and the DPRK. The US side should pay attention to the legitimate concerns of the DPRK and take substantive actions. China advocates direct dialogue between the US and the DPRK and will, as always, play a constructive role in promoting the settlement of the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
