China is willing to coordinate with the US on the Korean Peninsular nuclear issue in order to diffuse tension and push for resolution of the matter, Chinese State Councillor Yang Jiechi has said.
Yang made the remark during a meeting with US President Donald Trump at the White House on Thursday, Xinhua news agency reported. Washington looked forward to enhancing cooperation with Beijing on the issue to realise a denuclearised Korean Peninsula, Trump said.
