GENEVA - US and North Korean negotiators began a two-day meeting in Geneva on Monday, the second such encounter since six-party talks on disarmament collapsed more than two years ago.

The session, which follows talks in New York in late July, is aimed more at managing tensions on the tense divided Korean peninsula than resuming regional talks on ending the North's nuclear programs.

"Talks have started. They are in the room and talking," a US official said outside the American embassy in Geneva where the two sides were meeting.

The two delegations, who are staying at the same Geneva lakeside luxury hotel, arrived separately by car. Monday's session was expected to run until midday when the two sides break to have lunch separately, and resume at 2 p.m. (1200 GMT).
