China's top nuclear negotiator arrived in Seoul on Friday for talks on how to revive the long-stalled international talks on North Korea's nuclear program. The trip by Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei came as efforts to restart the six-party nuclear talks pick up pace ahead of the deadlock's one-year mark. The negotiations, involving China, Japan, the two Koreas, Russia and the United States, last convened in November. Wu was scheduled to meet his South Korean counterpart, Chun Yung-woo, and Foreign Minister Ban Ki-moon later Friday. Chun returned the previous day from an extended trip to the United States where he tried with his US counterpart, Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill, to flesh out a joint strategy aimed at luring North Korea back to the negotiating table.

Roh declined to give any details of what was contained in the proposal.
