North Korea and U.S. Conclude Talks with Little Progress
Beijing, February 24 (RHC)-- Delegations from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and the United States concluded a round of talks on several topics in Beijing. According to U.S. special envoy Glyn Davies, little progress was made during Thursday's talks.
According to Prensa Latina news agency, the First Deputy Foreign Minister of North Korea, Kim Kye Gwan, met with Davies in an attempt to pave the way for the resumption of six-party talks on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. China is the host of this process, stalled since December 2008. Also involved in the negotiations are Russia, Japan and South Korea.
At the end of the talks on Thursday, Davies described the meeting as serious and substantial, while his Korean counterpart described the dialogue as positive.
