On December 18, 2007, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei, also top negotiator of the Chinese delegation to the six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, inspected the process of disablement of nuclear facilities in Yongbyon in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Wu said the disablement process is an important part of implementing the Second-Phase Actions for the Implementation of the Joint Statement, as well as a significant step forward toward the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "We are pleased to see that the disablement process is going on smoothly under the procedure agreed by the six-party talks," Wu said "The engineers from the DPRK and the U.S. are working hard for this (disablement)," he added. He expressed hope that all parties will continue to earnestly fulfill obligations in accordance with the principle of action-to-action and implement the second-phase actions in a comprehensive manner.
