S. Korea and U.S. talk Norkor policy

SEOUL, Nov. 14 (UPI) -- A South Korean delegation travels to Washington this week to discuss U.S. policy toward the Korean peninsula, the Korea Times reported Sunday.

Of particular concern to some South Koreans is the possibility of a more hawkish approach by the second Bush administration concerning North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

Leaders of the ruling Uri Party and the opposition Grand National Party will confer with members of the Senate and House foreign affairs committees.

They hope to also meet with Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz, and Michael Green, National Security Council Director of Asian Affairs.

"We are trying to contact U.S. officials who have some influence in the U.S. policy toward the Korean peninsula," said Chung Eui-yong of the Uri Party. "Although the trip is too short to have in-depth dialogue with the U.S. officials, we will attempt to meet as many U.S. officials as possible."
