A second four-party preparatory meeting with the participation of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the Republic of Korea, the United States, and the People's Republic of China will be held in New York City on September 18 and 19. The preparatory meeting is to decide arrangements for the four-party plenary session. The meetings will be held at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. We wish to express our appreciation to Columbia University for its generosity in making these facilities available.

The exact timing of these meetings next week has not yet been arranged. I have nothing to say about the particulars of those meetings, however. ...
