North Korea nuclear talks to resume

Sept. 21, 2007 at 11:15 AM   |   Comments

BEIJING, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A timeline for the second phase of North Korea's denuclearization was on the agenda for the resumption of six-party talks in Beijing.

The sixth round of talks were set for Sept. 27-30 among China, Japan, Russia, the United States and North and South Korea, RIA Novosti reported Friday.

The resumption of the talks were announced Friday after North Korea unexpectedly, and without public comment, asked to postpone talks that set for earlier this week.

The delay may have been North Korea's reaction to news accounts of alleged links between the Pyongyang and Syria's pursuit of a nuclear program, which U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said would be of "great concern" if proven true, RIA Novosti reported.
