China and South Korea issued a joint call for the de-nuclearisation of the Korean peninsula at a summit in Seoul that was seen as a pointed snub of nuclear-armed North Korea by chief ally Beijing.

In a joint statement after their talks, the Chinese and South Korean presidents, Xi Jinping and Park Geun-Hye, reaffirmed their "firm opposition" to the development of nuclear weapons on the peninsula, but seemed divided on how best to persuade the North to give up its bombs.

While Park told reporters that the two sides had agreed to use "all means" possible to bring denuclearisation about, Xi stressed that "dialogue and negotiation" were the best way forward.
