UN envoy 'very satisfied' with nuke talks

Feb. 12, 2010 at 12:55 PM   |   Comments

SEOUL, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's special envoy to North Korea said Friday he is "very satisfied" with a new session of nuclear talks.

Lynn Pascoe made his comment in a brief airport news conference on his way to China after a four-day session in Pyongyang in another effort to persuade the communist state to rejoin stalled nuclear negotiations, Yonhap reported.

He did not elaborate.

The meeting by Pascoe, highest-ranking U.N. diplomat to visit North Korea, coincided with a trip to Beijing by North Korea's nuclear envoy to the six-party talks, which have not been held since late 2008.

North Korea has since conducted its second nuclear test and prompted the United Nations to toughen sanctions.
