Beijing hopes the meeting between Washington and Pyongyang will result in substantive steps toward denuclearization and the establishment of a peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Tuesday.

It is important and positive for the top leaders of the two countries to sit down and conduct equal talks , which is creating a new history, Wang said.

China welcomes and supports the meeting and hopes the two leaders will avoid disruptions, build mutual trust and overcome difficulties, he said.

China is willing to see all relevant parties make efforts toward denuclearization and the establishment of a peace mechanism on the peninsula, he said, adding that China will continue to play a constructive role in this regard.

The much-anticipated Trump-Kim Jung-Un summit has finally taken place in Singapore , but the North Korean leader must be mindful of the fact that barely a month ago, Donald Trump decided to walk away from a multi-lateral nuclear agreement signed by his predecessor, Barack Obama, thereby dishonouring and reneging on America's international commitments and obligations.
