She added the United States had agreed to meet the DPRK to finalize the details to move forward with proposed American food aid of "240,000 metric tons of nutritional assistance."

The DPRK and U.S. delegations met in Beijing on Feb. 23-24 for the third round of the high-level talks, after previous meetings in July and October last year.

Both the DPRK and the U.S. affirmed it was in their mutual interest to ensure peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, improve bilateral relations, and push ahead with denuclearization through dialogue and negotiations, a DPRK spokesman said.

Both sides reaffirmed their commitments to the Sept. 19 Joint Statement and recognized that the 1953 Armistice Agreement was the "cornerstone of peace and stability" on the Korean Peninsula before the signing of a peace treaty.

They also agreed to take measures aimed at building confidence and improving relations between the DPRK and the U.S., the DPRK spokesman said.

"The U.S. made it clear that sanctions against the DPRK are not targeting the civilian sector, including the livelihood of people," the spokesman said.

"Once the six-party talks are resumed, priority will be given to the discussion of issues concerning the lifting of sanctions on the DPRK and provision of light water reactors," he said.
