The Chinese Foreign Ministry predicted the destruction of the nuclear non-proliferation system.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin, commenting on the agreement between Seoul and Tokyo to strengthen US cooperation on the Korean Peninsula, said that this would destroy the nuclear non-proliferation system.

Earlier it was reported that South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida agreed to strengthen trilateral security cooperation with the United States and cooperate to implement an agreement on the exchange of data on North Korean missile launches. In addition, Yoon Suk Yeol left open the possibility of Japan’s future involvement in the Washington Declaration, an agreement he made with US President Joe Biden last month that outlines measures to strengthen the US commitment to “extended deterrence” to protect South Korea with all its military capabilities. including nuclear weapons.

“The trend that other countries can participate in the Washington Declaration only exacerbates tensions in the region, destroys the nuclear non-proliferation system, and damages the strategic interests of other countries. We hope that the relevant countries will not further move along the wrong path,” Wang said at the briefing on Monday.

The diplomat noted that the creation of small groups and their involvement in confrontation cannot solve the problem of the Korean Peninsula.

“All parties should adhere to the course of a political solution to the issue, make efforts to balance the reasonable concerns of all parties, maintain peace and stability in the peninsula,” Wang said.


Kishida on Sunday began his first visit to South Korea in 12 years as part of the resumption of “shuttle diplomacy” between the countries, which the leaders agreed to during a visit to Tokyo by South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol in mid-March this year. On the same day, the leaders of the two countries held a summit.
