That was the message Chinese President Xi Jinping delivered when he met Chung Eui-yong, top security adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Monday, Communist Party mouthpiece People's Daily reported.

Xi told Chung the peninsula was "facing an important opportunity of mitigation and dialogue", according to state broadcaster CCTV.

In the meeting, Chung briefed on the results of his recent talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump, expressing gratitude for active support by the Chinese government and President Xi Jinping on Seoul's efforts to realize the North's denuclearization.

Chung said Xi's "unwavering" commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and a peaceful settlement played a "significant" part in the recent developments.

Chung announced last week that Trump had said that he would meet Kim by May "to achieve permanent denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula. A location has not been decided for the North Korea-U.S. summit while Kim Jong Un and Moon will meet at the truce village of Panmunjom straddling the border between the two Koreas.

South Korean Spy Chief, Suh Hoon, was meanwhile to head to Tokyo to brief the Japanese government on the talks led by Chung in Pyongyang and Washington recently.

Speaking after meeting Suh, Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono credited recent changes in North Korea's position to increased pressure by global society. Japan and South Korea agreed today that maximum pressure must be maintained on North Korea until it takes concrete action towards addressing concerns about its nuclear weapon and missile programmes, Japan's foreign minister said. Kono said a verbal promise of denuclearization is not enough and that he and Suh agreed that the two sides, along with the US, will keep pressuring North Korea until it fulfills the promise with concrete actions.

He headed the high-level delegation that visited North Korea and the United States last week.

Cheng also said that while Beijing's role in the leaders' summits may be limited, "it's hard for North Korea to ignore China as China remains its neighbour and a country with veto power at the United Nations Security Council".
