SEOUL, South Korea — A South Korean official on Wednesday said the foreign ministers of South Korea and China have worries about a uranium enrichment program by North Korea that could lead to a second way to make atomic bombs.

A South Korean Foreign Ministry official said the two ministers agreed Wednesday to closely consult with each other over how to deal with the North's uranium program.

Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi flew to South Korea earlier Wednesday for a two-day visit.

It remains to be seen whether China, North Korea's only major ally, will allow the United Nations to criticize Pyongyang's uranium enrichment efforts.
