The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will soon deliver a declaration on nuclear disarmament to Beijing, its Ambassador to Russia Kim Yong-jae said on Thursday.
"Pyongyang will shortly hand over to Beijing a declaration on the implementation of its commitments on nuclear disarmament, and China will begin coordinating the terms of a new round of six-way talks," Kim Yong-jae was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying.
The main issue is "how the United States will be fulfilling its commitments," the ambassador spoke at a meeting at the embassy devoted to the 95th birthday of late DPRK President Kim Il Sung.
The DPRK had settled the issue of U.S. suspicions that the DPRK was enriching uranium as well as cooperating with Syria in the nuclear sphere, he said, adding that this had not happened and would not happen in the future.
The DPRK, the Republic of Korea (ROK), Russia, the United States, China and Japan take part in the six-way talks on the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue. U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill met with the DPRK's Vice Foreign Minister Kim KyeGwan on Tuesday in Singapore. Hill said that this meeting had moved the process forward to resolve the disarmament impasse.
