The chief delegates to the Six Party talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue are to meet in Beijing on July 18 and 19, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang announced on Thursday.

"The delegates will discuss issues related to the initial actions for denuclearization and explore arrangements of steps that will follow,'''' Qin said.

Describing the issue as "complicated", Qin said it involved the normalization of ties between the Democratic People''s Republic of Korea and Japan, economic and energy cooperation, and the establishment of a mechanism for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

"The systematic program calls for all parties involved to hold dialogue with mutual respect and each party''s concerns to be considered," he said.

The two-day meeting will be the first for the chief negotiators of China, the Democratic People''s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the United States, and Republic of Korea (ROK), Russia and Japan since the last round of talks went into recess in late March.

At the Six Party talks in February, Pyongyang pledged to shut down the Yongbyon reactor within 60 days in exchange for 50,000 tons of heavy fuel oil or equivalent aid.

However, the denuclearization process was held up when the DPRK insisted that 25 million U.S. dollars in funds frozen by the United States at the Banco Delta Asia in Macao first be returned.
