US President Obama said both Washington and Beijing want N.Korea to halt 'further provocations'

WASHINGTON - US PRESIDENT Barack Obama said on Wednesday that Washington and Beijing wanted North Korea to halt 'further provocations', after a summit with Chinese leader Hu Jintao. 'We appreciate the reduction of tensions on the Korean peninsula and North Korea must avoid further provocations,' Mr Obama told a joint news conference at the White House with Mr Hu. Mr Obama said that he and Mr Hu 'agreed the paramount goal must be complete denuclearisation of the peninsula'. 'In that regard the international community must continue to state clearly that North Korea's uranium enrichment programme is in violation of Korea's commitments and international obligations,' Mr Obama said. China is the main ally of North Korea, which last year shelled a civilian area in South Korea and was accused of sinking a vessel. -- AFP
