BEIJING, March 11 (Yonhap) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will discuss how to move ahead in the goal of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula during their talks in Moscow on Friday, China's foreign ministry said.

Wang is on a two-day visit to Moscow for talks with North Korea's nuclear standoff expected to top the agenda.

"The two foreign ministers will exchange views on moving ahead in the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula," China's foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters.

North Korea has been slapped with a fresh round of U.N. sanctions for its fourth nuclear test and launch of a long-range rocket this year.

Recently, North Korea has issued daily threats of nuclear strikes against South Korea and the United States at a time when Seoul and Washington have been conducting joint military drills.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has ordered his country to conduct more nuclear tests, according to the North's state media on Friday.
