HONG KONG - The United States is in no rush to resume nuclear talks with North Korea even though Washington has invited a senior diplomat to New York this week, US officials said on Monday.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced on Sunday that North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kae-gwan would discuss what needs to be done to restart the dialogue with Pyongyang which has been suspended since 2009.

Kim was North Korea's chief nuclear negotiator for years before being promoted last year.

Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell on Monday described the talks as "preliminary" and not necessarily a move toward restarting six-nation talks on the nuclear issue.
