South Korea's Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan said Wednesday that discussions to resume the stalled six-party talks on nuclear issue on Korean Peninsula are underway, local media reported.

Yu Myung-hwan told local media that participating countries in the six-way talks are waiting for the response of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) following U.S. special nuclear envoy Stephen Bosworth's recent visit to Pyongyang.

"Even if the talks resume, the announcement would come at a latest moment," Yu told reporters, according to Seoul's Yonhap News Agency.

Local media have reported that the six-way talks might restart before February next year.

Launched in 2003, the six-party talks on the Korean Peninsula involve China, the DPRK, the United States, South Korea, Russia, and Japan.
