North Korea's Vice FM in Beijing amid nuclear diplomacy
Turning now to the latest flurry of diplomacy that has led some to suggest the long-stalled six-party talks on North Korea's denuclearization could restart.
North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Kim Hyong-jun arrived in Beijing Tuesday for talks on the nuclear issue, including the six-nation dialogue with South Korea, China, the U.S., Japan and Russia.
The high-profile trip comes as China's chief nuclear envoy Wu Dawei was in Washington this week for similar discussions.
Also Tuesday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stressed the importance of decreasing the global threat of nuclear weapons during a speech in Washington.
He said North Korea and Iran should show actions that are fully verifiable under international nuclear nonproliferation guidelines.
