Top US Envoy Arrives in Seoul

(MENAFN- Qatar News Agency) Seoul September 30 (QNA) - A top US envoy on North Korea arrived in Seoul on Tuesday to discuss ways to resume the long-stalled six-party talks on denuclearizing the communist country with his South Korean counterpart.

Glyn Davies the top US nuclear envoy flew into Seoul for a two-day visit accompanied by Sydney Seiler the new special envoy for the six-party nuclear talks and Allison Hooker director for Korea at the National Security Council according to South Korea's (Yonhap) News Agency.

Later in the day Davies is scheduled to meet with his South Korean counterpart Hwang Joon-kook special representative for peace and security affairs on the Korean Peninsula for the talks that will take place less than a month after they met in the US.

The US envoy who met with his Chinese counterpart Wu Dawei on Monday is on a three-nation Asian trip that will also take him to Japan on Wednesday.

North Korea and Japan held a fresh round of talks in Shenyang on Monday over the North's probe into the fate of Japanese nationals that the North's agents kidnapped decades ago but substantive progress was not made at the meeting.

Pyongyang agreed in May to re-investigate the issue of the Japanese abductees. In return Japan lifted some of its unilateral sanctions imposed on the North over its missile and nuclear program. (QNA)
