Mutual trust also is growing between China and countries in the region due to joint effo

rts. The overall situation in the South China Sea is stable and becoming better, Shao said.

“Countries from the region have the will, wisdom and capability to manage differences and jointly

promote peace, thus transforming the area into a sea of peace, friendship and cooperation,” he said.

On the Korean Peninsula question, China insists on denuclearizing the penin

sula, and solving issues through dialogue and consultation, Shao said.

“China has consistently, seriously, fully and rigorously implemented

the United Nation’s resolutions regarding the peninsula,” he said. “China also is willing to

work with various parties to promote the denuclearization of the peninsula via political solutions.”
