  • On Sunday, China called for an emergency meeting in early December of envoys to the six-nation, including both Korea, the United State, Japan, Russia, and China to talks on North Korean nuclear disarmament amid high tensions on the Korean peninsula.

    But South Korea was rejecting China's for call to quickly convene multi-national talks to discuss North Korea. This comes as the United States and South Korea begin four days of naval drills seen as a show of strength to dissuade Pyongyang after last Tuesday's attack on Yeonpyeong island.  

    The Foreign Ministry was mentioned that South Korea is effectively rejecting immediate resumption of multi-party dialog involving North Korea.  

    President Lee Myung-bak who met Sunday with visiting Chinese officials is quoted as telling them the timing is not right and it is more urgent to deal with North Korea's belligerence.

    China says it wants to host emergency talks in the early December that would also include both Koreas, the United States, Japan and Russia.

    South Korean presidential press secretary Hong Sang Pyong says President Lee told China's State Councilor, Dai Bingguo, Seoul expects Beijing to use its influence with Pyongyang to defuse the tension on the Korean peninsula. 

    The spokesman also says South Korean President Lee also conveyed that Seoul will forcefully respond to any further military provocations from the North.
