Six-Party Talks
Assistant Secretary Hill (Sept. 30):
"Obviously this has been a very difficult period. We have had a number of discussions with our Six-Party partners, including last week in New York when Secretary Rice and Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan discussed this. And we also talked about the fact that we had been in touch with the North Koreans through the New York channel, and the fact that we have decided to move those discussions to Pyongyang."
Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Christopher R. Hill is traveling to Asia for meetings with his counterparts in the Six-Party Talks. He arrived in Seoul, September 30, and met with Kim Sook. Later in the week, he’ll visit Pyongyang before going to Beijing, where he’ll meet with the Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei. He is also scheduled to visit Tokyo for consultations with the Japanese. Special Envoy for the Six-Party Talks Sung Kim is traveling with him.
