BEIJING, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- There are now opportunities for the relaunch of six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, but such opportunities could be "fleeting," Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Saturday.

Wen made remarks after the second trilateral leaders' meeting of China, Japan and the Republic of Korea (ROK), in Beijing.

Wen called on all parties involved to "seize the opportunities and make good use of them," in an effort to achieve positive progress.

"If we missed the chance, it would cost us more efforts in the future," Wen said. "The key to the issue is to take action."

Wen reviewed his visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) last week. "I have obtained certain positive results, which were achieved through joint efforts of China and the DPRK, as well as the endeavors by all parties," he said.

Wen said the DPRK had "showed no opposition to the talks and expressed willingness to tackle the issue through bilateral and multilateral dialogue."
