Chinese and the US diplomats meet over the Korean nuclear issue



by Joseph Earnest  January 27, 2014


Newscast Media BEIJING—Chinese and U.S. diplomats for Korean Peninsula affairs will exchange views on denuclearization and resumption of the six-party talks, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Monday.

U.S. special envoy for Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Policy Glyn Davies arrived in Beijing late Sunday on the first leg of a trip that will take him to the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Japan this week.

In Beijing, Davies had talks with Chinese officials, including Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui and his counterpart Wu Dawei, spokesman Qin Gang told a regular press conference.

Davies last visited the three countries in November. U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns and Daniel Russel, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs visited the same countries last week.

The six-party talks between the DPRK, the ROK, the United States, China, Japan and Russia, have been suspended since late 2008.

Seoul and Washington have demanded Pyongyang show sincerity about denuclearization before they return to the table.

DPRK's ambassador to the United Nations, Sin Son-Ho, on Friday repeated a conciliatory message to the ROK, but demanded cancellation of the annual U.S.-ROK military drills scheduled to start in late February.    Add Comments>>
