WASHINGTON, November 11 (RIA Novosti) - A U.S. delegation could soon pay a visit to North Korea, a U.S. assistant secretary of state has said without giving the exact date of the visit.
"We've told North Korea that we are prepared for Ambassador Bosworth and a small interagency team to visit Pyongyang at an appropriate time not yet determined. Ambassador Bosworth's discussions in Pyongyang will take place in the context of the Six-Party Talks," Philip Crowley told a daily press briefing in Washington D.C. on Tuesday.
He said the purpose of the visit was "to facilitate an early resumption of the Six-Party Talks."
The six-party negotiations over North Korea's nuclear program, which include Russia, the United States, China, Japan and the two Koreas, stalled late last year when Pyongyang missed a deadline to hand over nuclear data as part of a deal under which the North was promised economic aid and diplomatic incentives.
