Four Party Talks: Third Plenary to Convene October 21
A Four Party working-level group met in New York on Friday, September 25, to discuss arrangements for the third plenary meeting of the Four Party talks. As a result of the meeting, the U.S., China, South Korea, and North Korea have agreed to convene the plenary in Geneva beginning October 21.
In accordance with an established rotation, South Korea will chair the third plenary.
The U.S. goals in the Four Party talks continue to be the reduction of tension on the Korean Peninsula and replacing the Armistice by the achievement of a permanent peace arrangement.
As in the past, the Swiss Government is providing facilitative assistance for the talks, and we are grateful for its support.
