Top nuclear negotiator of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Kye Gwan left Pyongyang Tuesday for Beijing to attend the latest round meeting of delegation heads for the six-party talks.

Kim will meet with Christopher Hill, U.S. assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific Affairs who heads the U.S. delegation, on Tuesday, Kim told Xinhua at the airport before his departure.

"The first phase has been accomplished, so the talks will focus on the sequence of the obligation and actions to be taken by the concerned parties at the second phase under Feb. 13 agreement," he said.

Kim also pledged to spare no efforts to make it a success the upcoming delegation heads meeting, which involve the DPRK, the United States, China, Japan, Russia and South Korea.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry announced last Thursday that the heads of delegations for the six-party talks are scheduled to meet in Beijing on July 18-19.

Under the February agreement reached during the six-party talks, the DPRK pledged to shut down the Yongbyon reactor within 60 days in the first phase in exchange for 50,000 tons of heavy fuel oil or equivalent aid.

The DPRK announced Saturday that it had shut down its Yongbyon nuclear facilities after it had received the first shipment of heavy oil from South Korea. The shutdown was confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Monday.
