Remarks Upon Departure from Beijing Capital International Airport

Christopher Hill, Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs
Beijing, China
December 23, 2006

Assistant Secretary Hill: Have a good holiday.  See you next time. 

Question: Are you coming back to Beijing? 

Assistant Secretary Hill: I'll come back to Beijing but I'm not sure when yet.  We'll let you know.   

Question: As soon as possible? 

Assistant Secretary Hill: At the earliest opportunity, I think, is when we'll come back.  

Question: How was Washington's reaction? 

Assistant Secretary Hill: How was Washington's reaction?  We wanted to make some real progress, so we were a little disappointed with what went on, and we hope that the Pyongyang delegation will go back to their capital, and maybe this time have some instructions. 

Question: Any new ideas? 

Assistant Secretary Hill: We're going to have some discussions about what we need to do.  Have a good holiday.  Goodbye.
