US and S. Korea begin civilian nuclear talks

WASHINGTON — The United States and South Korea have begun talks on a new civilian nuclear cooperation deal.
The two allies started work Monday on a replacement for an agreement adopted in 1972 and amended in May 1974. It expires in early 2014.
The State Department said Tuesday that both sides expect a new deal will continue their more than 50 years of atomic energy cooperation. It says the aim is to strengthen the alliance with more nuclear research and development cooperation.
