North Korea

Volume 451: debated on Tuesday 7 November 2006

To ask the Prime Minister pursuant to his oral answer of 25 October 2006, Official Report, column 1518, if he will make a statement on his discussion with a senior Chinese official on North Korea’s nuclear enrichment programme. (99602)

I discussed a wide range of issues with the Chairman of the National Committee, Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, Jia Qinglin, during his recent visit, including North Korea’s nuclear test and China’s commitment to a denuclearised Korean peninsula. I also welcome the agreement in Beijing last week on North Korea’s return to the six-party talks.
