SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea and the United States began talks Monday aimed at addressing demands by Washington that Seoul increase market access for American vehicles and beef so a stalled free trade agreement they struck more than three years ago can be submitted to Congress.

South Korean Trade Minister Kim Jong-hoon and US Trade Representative Ron Kirk sat down at a table at South Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, each accompanied by three other officials.

The talks, expected to last two days, come as President Barack Obama and his South Korean counterpart Lee Myung-bak aim for a resolution in time for their meeting on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Seoul that starts Thursday.
