Park says to use summit with Xi to harden cooperation with China for N.K. denuclearization

South Korean President Park Geun-hye said Monday she will use this week's summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping to further bolster cooperation with North Korea's most important ally in getting Pyongyang to give up its nuclear programs.

Park is scheduled to hold her first summit with Xi on Thursday, where North Korea's nuclear program is expected to be among the key topics, along with other bilateral issues, such as a free trade agreement between two of Asia's biggest economies.

"I think the Korea-China summit has a special meaning as both South Korea and China ushered in new governments, and it comes at a more important juncture than at any other time in terms of the situation on the Korean Peninsula and economic aspects," Park said during a weekly meeting with senior secretaries.
