BEIJING - China said on Tuesday that its foreign minister had spoken with his South Korean counterpart and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton following the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said the three agreed on the importance of stability on the Korean peninsula.

Liu added that he had "no information" about whether Kim's son and successor Kim Jong-un would be welcome to visit China, but later said: "I want to add that China and North Korea have always kept up high-level visits, and we welcome the North Korean leader to visit at a convenient time to both sides".
