U.S.-D.P.R.K. Bilateral Talks Adjourn

A D.P.R.K. delegation led by Vice Foreign Minister Kim Gye Gwan and a U.S. delegation led by Ambassador Charles Kartman met in New York from March 7-15. The two sides held talks on issues of common concern, including a visit by a high-level D.P.R.K. official to Washington, in a constructive, businesslike atmosphere.

At the talks, the two sides agreed to schedule further talks on preparation for a high-level visit through the New York channel. The two sides also agreed to schedule talks related to US concerns on the D.P.R.K.'s missile program and talks on Agreed Framework implementation. Dates and venues for these talks are being arranged through the New York channel. Finally, the D.P.R.K. reconfirmed its agreement for another U.S. visit to Kumchang-ni.
