Premier Li Keqiang urged for joint efforts to stabilize the situation on the Korean peninsula to continue during his meeting with President of the Republic of Korea Park Geun-hye in Seoul on Saturday. 

Li said China would support the peace, stability and denuclearization on the peninsula, as well as improved ties between the ROK and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Park said the ROK weighs highly on China's role in pushing for a denuclearization, peace and stability, and the ROK is willing to seek better communication and coordination with China on that issue.

It will be the first trilateral summit among the three top powers in East Asia in three years since the annual dialogue mechanism was discontinued due to historical and territorial disputes.
