North Korean officials will meet Thursday in New York with a senior US diplomat to discuss international efforts aimed at persuading the North to abandon its nuclear weapons. US Special Envoy for Six-Party Talks Sung Kim will meet with a delegation headed by Ri Gun, North Korea's director for North American affairs. The State Department said Tuesday that details of the meeting were not yet completed. Ri, his delegation and Kim are then expected to attend an event Friday organized by the National Committee on American Foreign Policy, a non-governmental organization. The State Department says the North Koreans are in New York from Tuesday until Monday. Meanwhile, a United Nations resolution condemning North Korean human rights abuses was to be circulated Tuesday.
