North Korea, China want to resume nuclear talks

North Korean and Chinese officials have called for the resumption of six-party talks on Pyongyang's nuclear program, Chinese authorities said Wednesday.

The announcement came as North Korea's chief nuclear negotiator, Kim Kye Gwan, was in Beijing for bilateral talks.

Kim and China's Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Yesui issued statements Wednesday calling for the resumption of the talks to "peacefully solve nuclear issues through dialogue" with all relevant parties.

North Korea, South Korea, China, Japan, the United States and Russia met last decade to deal with North Korea's nuclear weapons program but those meetings had been discontinued.

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I'm experiencing some minor security problems with my latest blog and I would like to find something more secure. Do you have any suggestions?

    First NK and now China. They just do not get it. Talk is cheap especially when you cannot be trusted. Action speaks louder than words. Put you money where your mouth is!

    I was wondering how long it would take until we heard from our N.K. friends again... They are like the little kid that always needs attention showered on them, good bad or indifferent. SInce they dissolved the peace accord, why waste our breath.
