BEIJING, June 12 (Yonhap) -- China expressed welcome and support for the North Korea-United States summit held in Singapore on Tuesday, vowing to play a constructive role to help implement summit agreements.

Geng Shuang, a spokesman of China's Foreign Ministry, made the remarks in a regular press briefing after being asked by an Yonhap News reporter to comment on the summit declaration.

"The international community has paid attention to the North Korea-U.S. summit in Singapore. As Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, it is very important and positively meaningful that the leaders of the two countries held dialogue on an equal footing," Geng said.

"New history has been made and China welcomes and supports it. This is also a goal that contains China's expectations and efforts."

He then expressed the wish that North Korea and the U.S. would remove obstacles, build mutual confidence and take substantial steps to attain denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula.

"We wish all related countries join the efforts, and China will play its own constructive role," said the spokesman.
