The United States and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will have financial discussions in New York on Nov. 19-20, the State Department said Wednesday.

"It's the Bilateral Financial Working Group. It's going to be held on November 19th and 20th in New York. The U.S. delegation is going to be led by Treasury Deputy Assistant Secretary for Tourist Financing and Financial Crime Danny Glaser," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said.

"We think it's an opportunity to familiarize the North Koreans with accepted international banking practices and problems that have affected North Korean access to the international financial system," McCormack said.

The DPRK shut down its nuclear reactor under a six-nation agreement. Moreover, the DPRK started disabling its nuclear reactor this month and has urged Washington to remove it from the list of "state sponsors of terrorism."
