Excerpt from AP video of Ambassador Goldberg's press conference in Tokyo, Japan.
AMBASSADOR GOLDBERG: Our overall goal in this effort is to return to a process of denuclearization, an end to missile, ballistic missile production and an end to proliferation from North Korea. And our discussions in this regard in implementing the resolution were very much in conjunction with that overall goal. ... Our belief is that the six party talks, the multilateral approach to dealing with the issue, is a central part of our efforts. We do and have said that bilateral contacts and discussions can be part of that framework but the six party talks and multilateral approach remain central to the way we will precede.
