Japan's Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada and U.S. special envoy on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Stephen Bosworth agreed on Friday to cooperate on issues surrounding the DPRK, but the chances of the six-party talks resuming remain unclear.

The meeting is part of a three-nation tour for the U.S. diplomat, who was told by Okada that Japan would like to deepen cooperation with the United States and South Korea on issues surrounding DPRK.

Okada said he was pleased to affirm that the United States and Japan share the same stance on the DPRK.

The on-off nuclear talks, initiated in 2003, had been stalled since the chief envoys of six countries' meeting in Beijing in December 2008.

Hosted by China, the talks also included the Democratic of People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), the United States, the Republic of Korea (ROK), Russia and Japan.
