China is supportive of multilateral talks with the United States, Russia, South Korea, Japan, and North Korea on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ambassador for Disarmament Fu Cong said on Thursday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Ambassador Fu, speaking during a Carnegie Endowment discussion on the future of nuclear disarmament, said that "the Six-Party talks is still a viable option." He further emphasized the need to discuss the "common objective" of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

In a veiled reference to recent US deployments of a controversial missile defense system in South Korea, Fu warned that the deployment of "systems that may antagonize or undermine the interests of those countries who are helping to resolve the issue" are not "the best way forward."

On September 9, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear test in blatant violation of international law. The international community condemned the nuclear test, and imposed harsh sanctions on Pyongyang following an earlier test in January.

The Six-Party talks on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula were held between 2003 and ended after North Korea withdrew from negotiations in 2009.
