BEIJING - The US envoy for the North Korean nuclear dispute said talks with Pyongyang's lead negotiator on Thursday were "serious and substantive" and would continue the next day but analysts have said no major breakthrough is expected.

The talks in Beijing between US Special Representative for North Korea Policy Glyn Davies and North Korean envoy Kim Kye-gwan are the Obama administration's latest effort to gauge whether Pyongyang's new leadership is willing to curb its nuclear activities and return to disarmament negotiations.

After a day of discussions with Kim, Davies told reporters that he could not go into details about any possible progress.

"The talks today were substantive and serious and we covered quite a number of the issues, and so as I say we'll pick up again tomorrow and see if we can't make a little bit of progress," Davies told reporters who gathered at his hotel
