SEOUL, Jan. 11 (Yonhap) -- The leaders of South Korea and China agreed Thursday to continue working together to peacefully resolve the North Korean nuclear issue, welcoming the result of the recent inter-Korean talks as part of such efforts.

"President Xi Jinping welcomed the improvement in the South-North Korea relationship as the result of high-level talks between the South and the North and said he actively supports President Moon Jae-in and the South Korean government to that end," Seoul's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

Xi's remarks were made in his telephone conversation with the South Korean president, which came two days after government officials from the divided Koreas held talks on the North's participation in the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea next month. The inter-Korean dialogue was the first of its kind since December 2015.
