BEIJING (Reuters) - The measures North Korea has taken to ease tension on the Korean peninsula should be acknowledged, and all other parties, especially the United States, should cherish the opportunity for peace, the Chinese government’s top diplomat, Wang Yi, said.

Wang, a state councillor and foreign minister, made the comment on Wednesday in Paris, where he is on an official visit, China’s foreign ministry said in a statement on its website.
