08:37, March 01, 2012

SEOUL, Feb. 29 (Xinhua) -- South Korea said Wednesday it welcomes the results of the latest high-level talks between agreement between the United States and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), at which the latter said it would suspend nuclear activities.

Seoul's foreign ministry made the comments shortly after Washington and Pyongyang announced simultaneously the agreement they reached at last week's talks in Beijing.

In immediate response, South Korean foreign ministry said in a statement that it particularly noticed the two sides have reached agreement on steps needed to resume the six-party talks Seoul and Washington have long called for, and Seoul expects the agreement can be faithfully implemented.

The agreement laid a foundation for achieving progress in South Korea's efforts to solve the nuclear issue comprehensively and fundamentally, the statement said.

Delegations of the DPRK and the United States met in Beijing on Feb. 23-24 for the third round of bilateral high-level talks.

During the talks, Pyongyang agreed to suspend its nuclear tests, long-range missile launches and uranium enrichment activity at Nyongbyon. It also agreed to allow the return of inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to monitor the moratorium on uranium enrichment, the official KCNA news agency reported.
