Seoul, Washington to Hold Disarmament Talks

(MENAFN- QNA) South Korea and the United States will hold talks on disarmament and nonproliferation later this week, during which they will discuss North Korea's nuclear program and other security issues, Seoul's foreign ministry said Wednesday.

Shin Dong-ik, Korea's deputy minister for multilateral and global affairs, will meet with Rose Gottemoeller, U.S. under secretary for arms control and international security, in Seoul on Friday, according to the ministry.

Korea's news agency (Yonhap) reported today that the two sides will discuss North Korea and Iran's nuclear issues under the scheme of nonproliferation and other global issues such as cyber and outer space security.

Seoul and Washington have been annually holding consultations on disarmament and nonproliferation since 2013 to beef up cooperation over global security issues.

Gottemoeller will arrive in Seoul late Thursday for a four-day visit before flying to China for the U.S.-China Security Dialogue.
