Six-party nuclear talks expected to reopen before mid- Nov.: S.Korean official
font size    

The new round of the six-party talks on nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula is expected to open before mid-November, said South Korean top negotiator to the talks on Tuesday.

"The six-party talks will likely reopen before the middle of next month," Song Min-soon, South Korean deputy foreign minister, made the remarks during a radio talk show of South Korean MBC radio earlier Tuesday.

"Participants will have to tackle a number of issues, such as the dismantling of North Korea (Democratic People's Republic of Korea)'s nuclear weapons program, economic aid and normalization of diplomatic relations, before addressing the construction of new light-water reactors in North Korea," said Song.

Song's remarks came one day after the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) confirmed it will return to the six-party talks in early November as scheduled.

On Sept. 19, China, the DPRK, the United States, Russia, South Korea and Japan adopted a joint statement over the nuclear issue, agreeing to reopen the talks in early November.
