SEOGWIPO: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao says avoiding conflict between the Koreas over the sinking of a warship is “most urgent.''
Wen made the comment Sunday at the conclusion of a two-day summit attended by South Korea, China and Japan.
The meeting on South Korea's resort island of Jeju was supposed to focus on trade issues, but the sinking of the South Korean warship in March overshadowed the event.
An international investigation concluded that a North Korean torpedo sank the ship, killing 46 sailors.
North Korea denies the allegation.
