Seoul, Washington Deputy Nuclear Envoys Hold Talks
(MENAFN- QNA) South Korea's deputy negotiator on the North Korean nuclear issue held talks with his US counterpart on Wednesday to discuss ways to resume the long-stalled six-party talks, Seoul's foreign ministry said.
Shin Chae-hyun, director general at the foreign ministry's North Korean nuclear affairs bureau, met with Sydney Seiler, the new US special envoy for the six-party nuclear talks, the foreign ministry added.
Seiler arrived in Seoul Monday for a three-nation trip that includes stops in China and Japan. His visit to Seoul marked his second since he became the special envoy for the six-party forum in September, South Korean News Agency (Yonhap) reported.
Later in the day, Shin will also have talks with his Russian counterpart Grigory Logvinov to exchange views on the North Korean nuclear issue, the foreign ministry noted.
The six-party talks involving the two Koreas, the US, China, Russia and Japan have been stalled since late 2008 when Pyongyang walked away from the negotiating table.
Now, the North is demanding the resumption of the talks without preconditions, which has been rejected by Seoul and Washington.
