(Entering the hotel)
QUESTION: How was your meeting?
ASSISTANT SECRETARY HILL: Very good. It was all a bout disablement and declaration and technical questions and making sure we were in sync before we start the plenary, which starts at three o'clock.
QUESTION: Do you have any other bilaterals?
ASSISTANT SECRETARY HILL: Just talked very briefly with the Chinese. I met briefly with Li Gun but didn't really have a bilateral. We talked with all the delegations. We had sort of a buffet lunch.
QUESTION: With Li Gun, you talked about?
ASSISTANT SECRETARY HILL: Just very briefly.
QUESTION: Anything of substance?
ASSISTANT SECRETARY HILL: No.
Okay? We'll see you all later.

(Leaving the hotel)
ASSISTANT SECRETARY HILL: We've got the three o'clock plenary. We're going off to the three o'clock plenary, and I'll come back afterwards and we can talk about what actually happened at the plenary. I really don't have anything new now.
QUESTION: Did you meet with Mr. Li Gun?
ASSISTANT SECRETARY HILL: Very briefly at lunch there. Let's see what happens today. Let's see if it is as I've described -- that is, there should be an exchange of technical approaches to problems that need to be put together in agreement at the next Six-Party plenary.
QUESTION: Will you brief after dinner after your meetings?
ASSISTANT SECRETARY HILL: I think I come here after dinner, so I think it will be later on. But stay in touch with Susan. She'll let you know. She knows more than I do.
See you later.
