Kerry hails Chinese North Korea pledge

Sunday, 14 April 2013 - 8:43


US Secretary of State John Kerry says China is "very serious" about a pledge to help resolve tensions over North Korea's nuclear programme.

The US and China earlier said they were committed to the "de-nuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula.

Kerry said the two sides would hold further meetings "to bear down very quickly" on how to achieve that goal.

North Korea has recently threatened attacks against South Korea and the US, amid a flurry of bellicose statements.
