S. Korean nuclear envoy to visit China


11:30, October 31, 2011

SEOUL, Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's top nuclear negotiator is scheduled to visit China next week to discuss resuming a multilateral forum aimed at dismantling the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s nuclear program, the foreign ministry here said Sunday.

During his two-day visit starting Tuesday, Lim Sung-nam will meet with his Chinese counterpart Wu Dawei to share their view on the outcome of the recent denuclearization talks between the DPRK and the United States, according to the ministry.

Pyongyang and Washington held the second round of talks last week in Geneva over resuming the six-party nuclear disarmament talks, stalled since 2008. Washington officials described the rare meeting as "positive," but no substantial progress has been reported.

Meanwhile, Pyongyang's First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-gwan arrived in Beijing on Sunday in a separate visit that is expected to involve a meeting with Wu, according to Yonhap News Agency.
