China hopes the six-party talks would be resumed before the Chinese Lunar New Year in Mid February, said Chinese State Councilor Tang Jiaxuan Thursday.

"The six-party talks constitute the realistic and effective way to solving the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula," Tang told the visiting Republic of Korea (ROK) Foreign Minister Song Min-soon.

"Recently the parties concerned have carried out helpful contacts and reached some consensus," said Tang, adding that China will work with the ROK to make the talks resume at an early date and strive for some positive progress.

Chinese Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival, falls on Feb. 18.

Song, who starts his three-day official visit to China on Thursday, said that the ROK is engaged in peaceful solution to the nuclear issue through dialogue and will work closely with host China to make the talks achieve new progress.

Later in the evening, Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing and Song held official talks at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in downtown Beijing.

Both sides conferred on bilateral ties and international and regional issues of common concern, according to the Foreign Ministry.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said earlier the situation of the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue and the six-party talks are on the agenda of Song's current China trip. Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao is also scheduled to meet with him on Friday.

Song's visit, together with a flurry of shuttle diplomacy among the parties, makes up renewed efforts to restart the six-party talks, which involve China, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), the United States, the ROK, Japan and Russia. 
All these efforts are of "positive meaning" and lay a foundation for an early resumption of the six-party talks, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Jiang Yu told reporters Thursday.

She said China is consulting with relevant parties on the "specific time" to resume the six-party talks.

Relevant parties have reached some understanding, Jiang noted, adding that all parties have expressed their will to resume the six-party talks as soon as possible.

The DPRK said Wednesday the next round of talks aims to initiate the implementation of an agreement signed in 2005.

Kim Kye-gwan, head of the DPRK delegation, said he was satisfied with the results of the talks with the United States, Russia, China and the ROK on how to implement the Sept. 19 agreement.

The DPRK and the United States held one-on-one contact and had reportedly reached some agreements.

All parties expressed hope for progress on implementing the September 2005 joint statement, in which the DPRK agreed to abandon its nuclear program in exchange for economic aid and security guarantees.
