China urged the United States and North Korea on Tuesday to "seize the moment" and take positive steps so that six-party talks on the North's nuclear program can resume quickly. China's UN Ambassador Zhang Yesui, who took over the rotating presidency of the Security Council this month, called recent talks between senior US and North Korean officials a "positive development." At a news conference Tuesday, Zhang said the most important thing now is for the key parties to "seize the moment and take some positive efforts and meet each other halfway so that ... the six-party talks will start as soon as possible." Washington and Pyongyang agreed after last month's meeting in Pyongyang on the need to resume the stalled six party talks. But the North cautioned that there are still unspecified differences to be resolved and did not make a firm commitment on when it would rejoin the negotiations with the US, Russia, China, South Korea and Japan.
