N. Korea: Talks with US were 'productive'

North Korea held "comprehensive and productive" discussions with a chief US nuclear envoy during his trip to the country's capital this week, the North's state media reported Saturday. During Christopher Hill's two-day trip to Pyongyang, the two sides agreed to "completely get over" a financial dispute that has held up the North's denuclearization, the North's official Korean Central News Agency reported, citing an unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman. The two sides also agreed to cooperate in holding a meeting of chief delegates to the six-nation nuclear talks in early July, and a meeting of foreign ministers of those countries in early August, the report said.
