August 13, 2007 11:16

US and North Korean envoys were meeting in Beijing on Monday ahead of six-nation talks aimed at ending Pyongyang's nuclear programs. US Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill said his meeting with Kim Kye Gwan aimed to smooth the way for the two-day talks later this week in the northeastern Chinese city of Shenyang. "We're not going to have a lot of time for a six-party meeting ... so we really need to be sure these issues are well tied up before that event," Hill said. Hill was also due to meet with Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wu Dawei on Tuesday, China's official Xinhua News Agency said.
