China is happy to see high-level talks between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the Republic of Korea (ROK) taking place, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said on Tuesday.
Lu said China welcomes and supports the positive efforts made by both sides in easing the tensions on the Korean Peninsula and hopes the talks mark a good beginning for both sides towards improving bilateral relations and easing tensions. 
"China also hopes the international community will give both sides encouragement, sufficient understanding and support," Lu said.  
Five senior officials each from the DPRK and the ROK began meeting at 10:00 local time (0100 GMT) on Tuesday at the Peace House in the truce village of Panmunjom – the first senior-level meeting between the two nations since 2015.
