A top North Korean nuclear envoy wants to visit the United States for rare talks next month, news reports said Saturday, amid a push by diplomats to revive negotiations on ending Pyongyang's nuclear program. Officials in Washington said no such trip was planned.

North Korea is strongly pushing for Kim Kye Gwan's trip to the United States in March, but the US has not authorized a visa for him, South Korea's Dong-a Ilbo newspaper reported, citing unidentified diplomatic sources.

Kim told his Chinese counterpart during this week's meetings in Beijing he hopes to hold a bilateral meeting with the US in March, Seoul's JoongAng Ilbo newspaper reported, also citing unnamed diplomats.
