North Korea may de-nuclearize Korean peninsula - if South Korea and the U.S. create suitable conditions for that. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that during his visit to Beijing, where he met with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.
'The issue of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula can be resolved, if South Korea and the United States respond to our efforts with goodwill, create an atmosphere of peace and stability while taking progressive and synchronous measures for the realization of peace,' Kim said as quoted by Xinhua news agency.
The North Korean leader added that his predecessors Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung insisted on de-nuclearization of the peninsula.
Xi Jinping praised his counterpart's initiative and expressed readiness to improve relations with North Korea.
