Washington: US National Security Advisor Susan Rice has met Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi in New York and the two leaders agreed to strengthen coordination on regional and global challenges, including North Korea and Iran.

"They reaffirmed their commitment to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and agreed that North Korea would not succeed in its twin pursuit of nuclear weapons and economic development," said Bernadette Meehan, Spokesperson of the National Security Council at the White House, Wednesday.

The leaders also discussed Iran, Afghanistan, global health security and counterterrorism.

Rice and Yang also agreed that Iran should seize the historic opportunity presented by the ongoing P5+1 talks to address the international community's concerns regarding its nuclear program.

"In discussing preparations for President Xi's state visit to the United States in 2015, Rice underscored the importance of expanding tangible cooperation on shared interests noting the historic joint climate announcement made last year while addressing areas of disagreement, including cyber issues," Meehan said.
