The US State Department said Lim and Davies also discussed the possibility of sending food aid to the DPRK.

According to the New York Times on Tuesday, Pyongyang said that it wanted to restore scuttled agreements with Seoul that could channel extensive investments from the ROK.

Wang said Pyongyang wanted to use the opportunity to break the international blockade.

China said it was ready to work with the new leadership.

"We believe that the DPRK people will turn grief into strength under the new leadership," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told reporters in Beijing.

The key to ease the tension is ROK-DPRK ties, said Huang Youfu, a researcher on Korean studies at Minzu University of China.

"If Pyongyang signals goodwill, I believe ROK President Lee Myung-bak will make a positive response to their bilateral relations during his New Year speech that is scheduled to be delivered on Jan 2."
