- Story Text: Germany has made good progress with China on the introduction of quotas aimed at producing more electric vehicles, Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said on Wednesday (May 24) after meeting with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, adding that more details needed to be worked out.
Gabriel was in Beijing for bilateral talks with China.
Germany has said it supports China's plan to put more electric cars on its roads as long as the drive is not discriminatory against foreign carmakers.
Wang also called for North Korea not to violate United Nations resolutions as China has pushed for full implementation of U.N. sanctions against neighboring North Korea for its missile and nuclear tests and called for dialogue.
