The U.S. denied Thursday it wanted to meet the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) during the ASEAN Regional Forum.

"The United States Government categorically denies reports that the U.S. is seeking a meeting with the DPRK at the ASEAN Regional Forum," State Department spokesperson Heide Fulton said in a brief statement.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Bali, Indonesia on Thursday to attend the forum, during which she is expected to call on the DPRK to return to the six-party talks on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The six-party talks, involving the U.S., China, the DPRK, South Korea, Japan and Russia, have been on hold for more than two years.
