The six-party talks on Korean Peninsula nuclear issue entered the second day Tuesday, with delegations setting to discuss the specific steps for the implementation of the initial actions.

"During the three-day talks, we reviewed the working groups yesterday, and we will look at the 60-day obligations today and chart the next phase tomorrow," chief US negotiator Christopher Hill said Tuesday morning before leaving hotel.

"I hope the 60-day discussion will go through very quickly so we could get on the discussion of the next phase," Hill said.

The six round of six-party talks, grouping China, North Korea, the United States, South Korea, Japan and Russia, started Monday in Beijing.

According to the Feb. 13 joint document reached at the end of last round of talks, North Korea agreed to shut down its nuclear facilities in exchange for energy aid within a 60-day initial phase.

Hill said the fuel oil are "in good shape" with South Korea giving the first delivery, and then have to figure out schedule of additional delivery in the next phase.

He also disclosed that he will meet with all the other five parties Tuesday, including an informal discussion with North Korea's chief negotiator Kim Kye-Gwan to talk about the activities in the six-party process.

A series of bilateral discussions will be held on Tuesday morning and there will be a chief negotiators meeting Tuesday afternoon, according to the press center.
