SEOUL, South Korea - A news report said Friday that a top North Korean nuclear envoy would visit the United States for rare talks next month, amid a push by diplomats to revive negotiations on ending Pyongyang's nuclear program. However, officials in Washington said no such visit was planned.

Plans call for North Korea's Kim Kye Gwan to travel to the US in March, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported from Beijing, citing an unidentified source.

However, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley told reporters Friday that there were no plans for a visit by Kim, and no current US discussions with North Korea about such a trip.

UN political chief, B. Lynn Pascoe, said after concluding a four-day trip to North Korea on Friday that he was unaware of plans for Kim to travel to the US.
