China on Wednesday asked the U.S. and North Korea to cherish recent efforts to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula and meet each other halfway, hours after North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un threatened to cancel a highly anticipated summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.

“When the peace settlement process on the peninsula is facing an important opportunity, all parties concerned, especially North Korea and the U.S., should meet each other halfway and show kindness.

“They should show sincerity to each other, and together create favourable conditions and atmosphere for the leaders’ meeting,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman, Lu Kang, said on Wednesday.

His statement came hours after Jong-Un threatened to cancel his summit with Trump, scheduled for June 12, if the U.S. insisted that North Korea completely abandon its nuclear weapons.

China also hopes the DPRK and the ROK will follow the spirit of the Panmunjom Declaration, understand and respect each other’s reasonable concerns to build trust and improve ties, Lu said.

Lu called on the parties concerned to avoid taking steps that would escalate the situation.

He also called for creating favorable conditions for dialogue and consultations.

    North Korea do not need to meet Trump or any American representative. If North Korea meet Trump or any American representative, it means North Korea has given America legitimacy over North Korea in this 21st century world international order which has Southern Countries Union- SCU under which North Korea exist and secured. At no time do America want peace between North Korea and South Korea. All America wanted is to subject North Korea under American bondage and dictatorship the way South Korea is under American bondage and dictatorship- it is not possible in this 21st century world international order in which North Korea and South Korea exist under Southern Countries Union- SCU. America has fallen. 20th century world international order is dead and gone forever. This is 21st century world international order. North Korea only has to meet representatives of Southern Countries Union- SCU. God Is With Us!!!
