Christopher R. Hill, Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs
Beijing, China
September 19, 2005

A/S HILL: Hi. Good morning. We had a lot of back and forth last night, so were heading off to the site now. I think Ill probably be back mid-morning, and then maybe we can have a discussion on where we are, but I really think were at the end game this morning. Ill be back mid-morning, late morning, and Ill tell you what it looks like.

QUESTION: Do you feel closer to the end today than you were yesterday?

A/S HILL: Were I think very close to the end. I think this is definitely the last day of this. I suspect it will be over in a matter of hours.

QUESTION: Do you think the Norths demand is a non-starter?

A/S HILL: The D.P.R.K. has some demands. The question is whether anybody accepts those demands. I think we have a pretty good arrangement on that, but I have to see what it looks like finally. So, see you later this morning. Thank you.

QUESTION: Have you talked to Washington and [inaudible]?

A/S HILL: I had a lot of discussions with Washington, of course, and I think all the other delegations have been back in touch with their capitals, because we really are at the end game now.

QUESTION: [inaudible]

A/S HILL: Well, were at the end game now and so were going to see where we are in the next couple of hours. Ill be back here. Thank you very much.
