15:00, February 21, 2012

SEOUL, Feb. 21 (Xinhua) -- A group of senior South Korean officials left for the United States Tuesday for talks over U.S.- led sanctions against Iran, local media reported.

A delegation consisting of foreign and finance ministry officials are scheduled to meet with U.S. counterparts including Robert Einhorn, special adviser for non-proliferation and arms control in the U.S. State Department, according to YTN television news.

The four-day visit comes at a time when South Korea is looking to diversify sources of oil in a show of support for the sanctions campaign aimed at cutting petroleum imports from oil-rich Iran.

Officials are expected to discuss how much oil imports from Iran Seoul has to cut, YTN reported.
