U.S. top negotiator Christopher Hill to the six-party talks hoped for success out of the upcoming six-party talks when arriving at the Chinese capital Wednesday afternoon.
"This is an very important session," said Hill, U.S. assistant secretary of state, noting "We all know what we need to accomplish, and we all hope success,"
The third phase of the fifth round six-party talks will start from Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry announced on Jan. 30, without saying how long the new talks will last.
"I want to emphasize the real success is we completed the joint statement of 2005, not just a start," said Hill.
Hill had just visited the Republic of Korea and Japan to coordinate their positions. "We all work hard for the consultation at all those places. Let's see what we can achieve," he added.
