BEIJING - China's Foreign Ministry pushed back against US pressure on North Korea and the disputed South China Sea on Friday, as US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Beijing for high-level meetings.

Speaking in Seoul before leaving for Beijing, Kerry said on China should be doing more to help nudge Pyongyang - which has rattled the region with nuclear tests and angry rhetoric - into line.

Asked about that remark, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China had been working hard to get North Korea to return to talks on its nuclear program, pointing out Chinese diplomats visited Pyongyang recently.

"China as a responsible, big country has been actively promoting and resolving the nuclear issue and has played its due role," Hua told a daily news briefing.

"We have, through different channels, worked on the North Korea nuclear problem through the six-party nuclear talks, and have maintained close communication with the parties."
