His remarks come at a time when a series of recent events raise hopes for Pyongyang's imminent return to the suspended six-party talks involving the DPRK, South Korea, China, U.S., Japan and Russia, which hit a snag since the DPRK boycotted the talks in protest over the U.N. sanctions. "We are also prepared to initiate work on other matters of the September 2005 statement," he added, referring to disarmament obligations Pyongyang pledged in the six- party framework, according to Yonhap.

Earlier in the day, Bosworth met with Seoul's point man on the DPRK, Unification Minister Hyun In-taek, to discuss the six-party talks and other issues related to the inter-Korean relations.

The two agreed that Pyongyang's unconditional return to the negotiation table is important, according to the ministry.

The envoy is scheduled to leave for home on Saturday after meeting with high-ranking officials in Tokyo.
