Special Representative for North Korea Policy Stephen Bosworth and a U.S. interagency delegation met today with First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-Gwan and the D.P.R.K. delegation at the United States Mission to the United Nations in New York. Today’s discussions have been serious and business-like. We look forward to continuing our meetings tomorrow.
As the Secretary has said, this is an exploratory meeting to determine if North Korea is prepared to fulfill its commitments under the 2005 Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks and its international obligations, as well as to take concrete and irreversible steps toward denuclearization.
We continue to coordinate closely with the Republic of Korea and our other partners.
