South Korean President Park visits China for North Korea talks

South Korea President Park Geun-hye visited China on Thursday for talks with China about North Korea.

Park met with China President Xi Jinping seeking support for ongoing efforts to get North Korea to rejoin nuclear disarmament talks, BBC reports.

"I will try to make cooperation between the two countries more substantial and harden Korea-China cooperation for the sake of attaining the goal of North Korea's denuclearisation," Park said, according to BBC.

North Korea issued a series of threats throughout March regarding a nuclear attack on U.S. soil and all out war on its neighbor, South Korea. This is a trend which has been seen in the past.

China has been a key part of lowering tensions related to North Korea in the past. China is North Korea's largest trading partner, BBC reports.

Six-nation talks that were aimed at ending North Korea's nuclear programs have been not proceeded since they ended 2009.

"We hope all sides involved can continue to work toward returning to the six-party talks and make concrete efforts to resolve the relevant issues," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, according to BBC.
