Six-party talks on scrapping North Korea’s nuclear programs will resume on Thursday in Beijing after a nine-month break. From ABC News, Australia.
North Korea last month delivered a long overdue declaration of its nuclear activities, clearing the way for progress in the tortuous negotiations.
In a dramatic gesture intended to stress its commitment to disarmament, it also blew up the cooling tower at the plutonium producing Yongbyon complex.
Seoul’s envoy also says working level meetings will be held on denuclearisation and economic and energy aid in between the top level talks.
Communist North Korea last week said it could not go ahead with the next stage of a six-party denuclearisation deal until other parties sped up their promised energy aid.
