China on Wednesday urged the US and North Korea to meet each other halfway, show good will and sincerity, and together create good conditions and the right atmosphere for their leaders' summit.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said the two sides should avoid behavior that could stimulate or trigger tensions on the

Lu made the remarks after North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan said earlier Wednesday that Pyongyang would reconsider the summit with the US if it comes under continued pressure for Pyongyang to "unilaterally" abandon its nuclear program.
