The newly appointed, US Special Representative for North Korea Policy,
Glyn Davies, arrived in Seoul on Wednesday, to discuss prospects of a third round of negotiations, with the North on ways to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.
Davies, who succeeds Stephen Bosworth, will meet with South Korea's top nuclear envoy, Lim Sung-nam on Thursday, to assess the North's nuclear situation, following the recent Pyeongyang-Washington dialogue, held in Geneva in October.
While the South, the US and Japan demand that the North first give up ALL nuclear activities before returning to the six-party table, North Korea recently revealed its progress, in developing low enriched uranium for light-water nuclear reactors.
After wrapping up his five-day trip to Seoul, the US envoy will then travel to Japan and China, to continue talks on regional security in Northeast Asia.
