N. Korea tops agenda for S. Korea's national security adviser in Washington
North Korea and its nuclear program are topping the agenda for South Korea's presidential national security adviser Kim Jang-soo, who is currently in Washington for talks on bilateral security issues.
Speaking to reporters on Thursday, he said that the issues surrounding North Korea are more important than Seoul's request to delay the transfer of wartime operational control from the U.S. to Korea.
He also said that the six-party talks on denuclearizing North Korea will only resume if Pyongyang demonstrates it is serious about ending its nuclear program.
Kim's talks with his U.S. counterpart Susan Rice just ended and the two are said to have agreed to fully cooperate so that the OPCON transfer issue can be resolved within the first half of next year.
