North Korea, US hold talks on denuclearization issue
Adjust font size:

Officials from North Korea concluded a three-day meeting with a visiting US delegation Saturday on the implementation of an agreement under the six-party talks.

"Issues of concern in implementing the October 3 agreement made at the six-party talks were discussed," said the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

The discussion reportedly took place in "an earnest and practical atmosphere," but no further details were released.

From Thursday to Saturday, Sung Kim, director of the US State Department's Office of Korean Affairs, visited North Korea to persuade Pyongyang to make a full declaration on its nuclear programs.

Upon arrival in Beijing from Pyongyang on Saturday, Kim told reporters at the airport that the DPRK did not give a full declaration as demanded by the US during his trip.

North Korea, which has missed a year-end deadline to make a full and complete declaration of its nuclear program, argued that the delay was caused by others who failed to fulfill in time their commitments under the accord.

Under an October agreement of the six-party talks, which also involve Russia, China, South Korea and Japan, the DPRK agreed to disable all its existing nuclear facilities and provide a complete and correct declaration of all its nuclear programs by the end of 2007.
