South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK, held a senior-level, inter-governmental dialogue on Tuesday.
China, as an important stakeholder on the Korean Peninsula issue, says it's pleased to see the talks happen.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said on Tuesday that China welcomes and supports the DPRK and Republic of Korea in their positive moves to smooth relations,
The inter-Korean dialogue held at the truce village of Panmunjom is the first one in about two years, with an initial focus on the DPRK's participation in the South Korea-hosted Winter Olympics next month. 
Lu said China hopes the high-level talks will give the two sides a good beginning in improving relations, pushing forward reconciliation and cooperation, as well as easing tensions on the Peninsula.
