China has proposed unofficial 6-nation talks on North Korea's nuclear programs in July, Kyodo News agency reported Saturday. The talks, which have been stalled since November, include Japan, two Koreas, the United States and Russia. Wu also reportedly conveyed a warning to Choi against Pyongyang's suspected move to launch a long-range missile, urging North Korea to avoid any actions that would aggravate regional tensions and further derail long-stalled six-party talks. As North Korea's closest ally and a critical provider of fuel and other economic assistance, China carries unusual weight in diplomacy to engage the isolated country's government.
