China's foreign minister called for flexibility to restart international talks on North Korea's nuclear weapons, saying a "cool-headed" approach was necessary. Li Zhaoxing spoke Friday as concerns have mounted on how to bring the reclusive communist nation back to the six-party talks that Pyongyang has boycotted since November. Reports by South Korea's spy agency that the North may be preparing for a nuclear bomb test have added new urgency to the efforts. Li said in a speech at the UN General Assembly meeting on Friday.
