China's foreign ministry has responsed to questions concerning remarks by US President Donald Trump on Sunday. Trump said in his latest twitter message that China is working with the US in dealing with issues on the Korean Peninsula.

The foreign ministry says that China welcomes a positive role played by the US, which is one of the most important players in Korean Peninsula issues. China is ready for close contacts with all parties including the US.

"China has been proposing simultaneous suspensions of the DPRK's nuclear-weapons program and U.S.-South Korean joint military drills. We hope this plan could ease the tensions and bring all parties back to the negotiation table. We welcome all of the pragmatic initiatives that help to resolve the peninsula issues in a peaceful way. All of the choices aiming for peace and denuclearization on the peninsula benefit all parties," Chinese Foreign Minsitry spokesman Lu Kang said.
