A joint press release was made public at the three-party negotiations of vice foreign ministers of the DPRK, Russia and China held in Moscow on October 9, 2018.
The joint press release is as follows:
Choe Son Hui, deputy minister of the DPRK Foreign Affairs, Igor Morgulov, vice foreign minister of the Russian Federation, and Kong Xuanyou, vice foreign minister of the People's Republic of China, had three-party negotiations on the Korean peninsula issue in Moscow on October 9, 2018.
The three parties reached a consensus of view that all the issues regarding the Korean peninsula should be settled in a peaceful, political and diplomatic way.
They highly appreciated the efforts of the countries concerned for political solution to the Korean peninsula issue and expressed support for the negotiations between the DPRK and the USA and between the north and south Korea for allaying fears and mending fences with each other.
The three parties reaffirmed the will for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and establishment of a peace regime there.
The three parties shared the understanding that such processes should be ensured to progress in a stage-by-stage and simultaneous way while giving precedence to confidence-building and that they should be accompanied by corresponding measures by the countries concerned.
Taking notice of the significant, practical steps for denuclearization taken by the DPRK, the three parties reached a consensus on the need for the UNSC to activate the process of adjusting sanctions upon the DPRK in time.
The three parties re-clarified their common stand against independent sanctions.
Also, they discussed in detail the necessity for consolidating bilateral or multilateral cooperation between the relevant countries in order to establish a lasting peace regime on the Korean peninsula.
The three parties agreed to continue dialogue.
