BEIJING, Nov. 30 (Xinhua) -- China on Tuesday called for resumption of dialogue and negotiations amid rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

"Under current circumstances, it is imperative and important to return to dialogue and negotiations as soon as possible," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei at a regular press conference.

China on Sunday proposed emergency consultations among the heads of delegations to the Six-Party Talks early next month.

"We believe all parties concerned will consider China's proposal seriously and give proactive response," said Hong.

Hong Lei said Akitaka Saiki, Japan's chief negotiator to the six-party talks, arrived in Beijing on Tuesday. He will meet Wu Dawei, Chinese special representative for the Korean Peninsula affairs.
