Adjust font size:

Delegations of the United States and North Korea to the six-party talks will meet again on Wednesday.

Top US negotiator Christopher Hill made the remarks Wednesday morning in his hotel.  He expected to have bilateral meeting with the North Korea side later in the morning, Hill told reporters.

Hill said only bilateral contacts were scheduled on the third day of the second phase of the fifth round of six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.

As to the financial issue between the two nations, Hill said the discussion was "still going on."

On the sidelines of the six-party talks, the United States and the North Korea held a separate meeting on financial issue in Beijing on Tuesday.

President of the North Korea's Foreign Trade Bank O Kwang Chol held three-hour talks with Daniel Glaser, US Treasury Department's deputy assistant secretary for terrorist financing and financial crimes, at the US Embassy on Tuesday afternoon.

Financial sanction imposed on the North Korea was one of key stumbling blocks that had stalled the six-party talks 13 months ago.

Wednesday's discussion on financial issue will be held at the North Korean Embassy, according to Hill.

Hill said he had talked with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other officials on related situation of the six-party talks on Tuesday night.
