From Korea Times
The chief nuclear envoys of China and South Korea are expected to meet separately this week with senior U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. to discuss the resumption of the six-party talks on North Korea’s denuclearization, amid a flurry of diplomacy among involved parties.
Wu Dawei, Beijing’s representative for Korean Peninsula issues, was slated to meet Wednesday (local time) with Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg and others, State Department spokesman Phillip Crowley said Tuesday.
On the same day, Wu told reporters in Tokyo that Beijing plans to put forth a fresh proposal to resume the stalled six-party talks, but did not elaborate, according to Kyodo News. He was there to discuss the talks with Japanese Foreign Minister Katsuya Okada.
