China says the notion of lifting sanctions should be seized as “common ground” after the US and North Korea failed to reach an agreement during their nuclear summit in Vietnam.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a regular news briefing Friday that while the US and North Korea have presented different accounts of why the summit failed, “both sides believe that the lifting of sanctions is an important component of the denuclearization process.”

Lu added that China welcomes the “positive will” expressed by the US and North Korea to maintain communications.
