Pyeongyang and Washington will reopen its third set of nuclear talks this Thursday.
This is for the first time since the death of late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il which experts believe will provide a glimpse into whether a political transition to Kim Jong-un is going smoothly in the reclusive state.
The U.S. pointman on North Korea, Glyn Davies scheduled to meet with his North Korean counterpart Kim Kye-gwan in Beijing said on Wednesday, restarting the long-stalled six party nuclear talks, depends on North Korea.
He added that he wants to talk about the future,.. not about the past.
China's CCTV reported earlier on Wednesday that North Korea's senior diplomat simply said "we will wait" in response to a Chinese reporter's question on what he anticipated from the high-level nuclear dialogue with the U.S.
