North Korean leader Kim Jong Un says his nation supports China's efforts to restart the six-party talks on Pyongyang's nuclear program, Japan's NHK reported today.

Kim made the comment in his talks with Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao on Thursday. Li is in the North's capital to attend a ceremony to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice. He also met North Korea's number two Kim Yong Nam earlier in the day.

China's Xinhua news agency reports that in the meeting with Kim Jong Un, Li noted that many Chinese soldiers lost their lives in the war along with North Korean troops. Li said today's peace is hard earned, calling on Kim not to take provocative action.

Li said that China, together with all related parties, would like to push for the resumption of the six-party talks and pursue the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. He was asking not only North Korea but also the United States to take a flexible approach.

Kim said his nation is dedicated to developing its economy and improving people's lives and needs a stable external environment to achieve these goals.
