Envoys for six-party talks gather in Seoul

Top nuclear envoys for six-party talks to dismantle the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)’s nuclear program gather in Seoul this week to discuss cooperation in Northeast Asian region.

Top delegates to the six-way dialogue from China, the United States, Russia and Japan will take part in the multilateral forum on the Northeast Asia Peace and Cooperation Initiative. Attending the forum, the second after last year’s first round, will be Chinese vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin, Russia’s deputy Foreign Minister Igor Margulov, U.S. special representative for DPRK policy Sung Kim, and Kimihiro Ishikane, recently appointed director-general for the Japanese foreign ministry’s Asian and Oceanian affairs bureau.

The South Korean foreign ministry asked the DPRK’s counterpart to participate in the multilateral forum, but there has been no response delivered from Pyongyang.
