North Korea says ready for six-party talks

SEOUL - North Korea said on Monday it was prepared to resume six party nuclear disarmament talks without preconditions at an early date following a flurry of diplomatic activity to restart the stalled process.

"The DPRK remains unchanged in its stand to resume the six-party talks without preconditions at an early date and comprehensively implement the Sept. 19 joint statement on the principle of simultaneous action," North Korea's foreign ministry said.

A top North Korean diplomat visited the United States last week in the first such contact between the sides in 19 months, a week after the two Koreas' nuclear envoys met. The meetings have raised hopes for a resumption of six-party talks.
