Inter-Korean nuclear talks will take place this Wednesday in Beijing with South Korean envoy Wi Sung-lac and North Korean vice foreign minister Ri Yong-ho representing each side.
Ri has been fronting the North since the first inter-Korean nuclear talks this year while the North's first vice foreign minister Kim Kye-gwan is seen to be in charge of the talks between the North and the United States.
The second nuclear talks are expected to last longer than the previous negotiations held in Indonesia late July as it will be the first discussions for resuming the six-party talks as well as setting out details for the North's denuclearization… such as allowing the IAEA officials to inspect the country for nuclear development activities.
The uranium enrichment program or UEP will be the core of the talks as the South and the US are urging the North to drop the program immediately while the North is firming its stance to discuss the UEP in the six-party talks.
