U.S. envoy on DPRK to travel to Asia


16:31, December 06, 2011

WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. envoy for policy on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) will travel to South Korea, Japan and China this week, State Department said in a statement on Monday.

U.S. special representative on DPRK policy Glyn Davies will arrive in Seoul, the capital of South Korea on Wednesday and then travel to Tokyo, the capital of Japan on Sunday, and finally go to Beijing on next Tuesday, according to the statement.

The statement said Davies will meet with senior government officials in these three cities to "exchange views on Korean Peninsula issues," said the statement.

U.S. special envoy for six-party talks Clifford Hart will accompany Davies, who replaced his predecessor Stephen Bosworth in October, on this trip, the statement added.

The six-party talks were launched in 2003, but got bogged down in December 2008 after holding six rounds. The DPRK quit the talks in 2009.

The DPRK has said that it is ready to resume without preconditions the multilateral negotiations, a mechanism involving the DPRK, South Korea, the U.S., China, Japan and Russia.
