Question: Could you please provide a readout of Ambassador Davies’ meetings with his Chinese counterpart?

Answer: People’s Republic of China Ministry of Foreign Affairs Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Affairs Wu Dawei had a productive set of discussions on North Korea today with a range of U.S. officials, including the Department of State’s Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Daniel Russel and Special Representative for North Korea Policy Glyn Davies.

Tomorrow he will meet again with Ambassador Glyn Davies, and also meet with Under Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman and NSS Senior Director for Asian Affairs Evan Medeiros.

The United States and China agree on the fundamental importance of a denuclearized North Korea. Special Representative Wu’s visit is part of a series of high-level, in-depth U.S.-China discussions on how to achieve our shared goal of a denuclearized North Korea in a peaceful manner.
