China hopes that nations taking part in renewed talks next week on North Korea's nuclear program will be flexible in order to make substantial progress, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Tuesday. Participants should "show flexibility and a pragmatic attitude and take concrete steps to achieve positive results" during the six-nation negotiations, ministry spokesman Qin Gang said. Beijing announced Monday that the talks will resume on December 18, ending a 13-month boycott by Pyongyang in protest at US financial sanctions. "We believe that the success of the talks depends on whether the results move toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, whether it goes in the direction of peace and stability in northeast Asia," Qin said at a regular briefing.
