Envoy Stephen Bosworth, who made the first trip by a U.S. officials to Pyongyang since North Korea carried out a nuclear weapons tests and other provocative moves, including a series of missiles tests.

The United States is seeking to convince North Korea to return to the six-party talks regarding the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. In addition to Pyongyang and Washington, six-party talks include China, Japan, Russia and South Korea. They have been on hold since North Korea walked away last spring.
