Wu Dawei, China's special representative for Korean Peninsula affairs, arrived in Seoul Thursday for talks on the situation of the peninsula and reopening moribund six-party talks on denuclearization of the peninsula.

Wu, also Chinese top envoy to the six-party talks, is on a three-day visit here, during which he will sit down with South Korea's top nuclear envoy Wi Sung-lac.

Wu is also scheduled to meet with Vice Foreign Minister Shin Kak-soo and Kim Sung-Hwan, Senior Secretary to the President for Foreign Affairs and National Security.

Talks between Wu and his counterparts in Seoul will be mainly focused on the peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula and potential resumption of the six-party nuclear talks, a Chinese diplomatic source told Xinhua.

Wu visited the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Aug. 16-18. During the visit, Wu met with DPRK's Foreign Minister Pak Ui Chun, Vice Foreign Ministers Kim Kye-gwan and Kim Song Gi.

Beijing plays host to the multilateral talks that also involve the two Koreas, the United States, Japan and Russia. The talks hit a snag since Pyongyang unilaterally pulled out in April 2009.
