Fourth Round of Six-Party Talks: Early Morning Transit St. Regis Hotel

Christopher R. Hill, Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs
Beijing, China
August 4, 2005

QUESTION: What’s your schedule today?

A/S HILL: Don’t know yet. I’ve just got to go over to the Embassy and make some calls to talk to some of our senior people back in Washington. Then, we’ll wait to hear from your Chinese hosts. I think everybody knows the score right now. We’re waiting for the North Koreans to give an answer to the Chinese on their draft. It’s got to be a real answer. They’ve got to make a real decision. Let’s see if they’re ready to do it.

QUESTION: Yesterday you said you had no plan to meet with D.P.R.K. people, why?

A/S HILL: There’s no reason to meet them now. They’re talking to the Chinese. They know exactly what the situation is. The Chinese have a draft. We’ve responded. The Russians have responded. The South Koreans have responded. The Japanese have responded. So, let’s see what the North Koreans have to say. Thank you very much.
