North Korea nuclear talks to resume

Six-nation talks on North Korea's nuclear program will resume this week in Beijing, South Korea's chief nuclear envoy said Tuesday, according to the Yonhap news agency.

"Important issues will be discussed," said envoy Kim Sook, "including the appraisal of the declaration and the establishment of a verification mechanism."

China will host the talks after a nine-month hiatus. In addition to the Koreas and China, the talks also include Japan, Russia and the United States.

Kim told reporters about the upcoming sessions as he was heading to Beijing for preliminary meetings with his counterparts from other participating nations, Yonhap reported.
