Barack Obama's envoy on North Korea will travel to the communist country early next month for the first bilateral talks with the regime since he took office, the US president said Thursday. Obama said at a joint news conference in Seoul with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak that Ambassador Stephen Bosworth would go to Pyongyang on Dec. 8. North Korea has been pushing for bilateral talks with Washington to discuss the standoff over Pyongyang's nuclear program. The US has agreed to the talks but has stressed they must lead to the resumption of six-nation disarmament negotiations. North Korea conducted a nuclear test and test-fired a series of missiles earlier this year.
