Representatives from six parties to the Korean nuclear talks will head for Yongbyon in North Korea from Nov. 27 to 29, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Qin Gang announced on Monday.
Qin said the six parties, China, North and South Korea, the US, Russia and Japan, have agreed to jointly send representatives there to learn about the implementation of nuclear facilities disablement.
North Korea shut down Yongbyon nuclear reactor in July. It agreed to disable all existing nuclear facilities and to provide a complete and correct declaration of all its nuclear programs by the end of this year, according to a joint document released on Oct. 3 when the second phase of the sixth round of six-party talks ended in Beijing.
The document said the disabling of the five megawatt Experimental Reactor, the Reprocessing Plant (Radiochemical Laboratory) and the Nuclear Fuel Rod Fabrication Facility in Yongbyon would be completed by Dec. 31.
