S. Korean FM would visit N. Korea for nuke talks

South Korea's foreign minister said Friday he would be willing to travel to North Korea to help resolve the standoff over the communist nation's nuclear weapons ambitions. But Ban Ki-moon, speaking to a local press club, didn't elaborate and hasn't received an invitation from Pyongyang. The last high-level visit by a South Korean official to the North was more than a year ago, when then-Unification Minister Chung Dong-young met leader Kim Jong Il in talks that eventually led to the country returning to international nuclear disarmament talks.
