The six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue are
likely to resume in early December, US Assistant Secretary of State
Christopher Hill said in Hanoi Wednesday.
"I think we will try to use the next few weeks to be very busy
and maybe begin the talks sometime in early December, probably,"
said Hill on the sidelines of an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation
(APEC) forum meeting in Vietnam.
The six-party talks on the Korean nuclear issue have remained
stalled since the last round was held in Beijing last November.
The last round of talks, involving China, North Korea, the
United States, South Korea, Russia and Japan, ended up with a
Chairman's Statement, in which the parties concerned agreed to
resume the talks as soon as possible.
