LOS ANGELES, June 5 (UPI) -- China and the United States have a mutual interest in resolving conflict on the Korean peninsula, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., says.

Schiff -- a member of the State, Foreign Operations Subcommittee -- addressed a group of Chinese journalists Friday in Los Angeles, China's state-run Xinhua news agency reported. He said China and the United States need each other's support in the six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear program.

Schiff said the relationship between Washington and Beijing is improving after a period of strain. Divisive issues include U.S. military support for Taiwan and criticism of Chinese actions in Tibet.

Tension between North and South Korea is running high following the sinking of a South Korean naval vessel near the international boundary. An official international investigation concluded the ship was sunk by a North Korean torpedo, but North Korea denies any aggressive action.

Schiff said the situation is not likely to affect U.S.-China relations.
