China's top nuclear negotiator has made an unexpected visit to Pyongyang, in a likely effort to restart multilateral talks to denuclearize North Korea.
The North's state-run media on Monday said Wu Dawei, Beijing's chief envoy to the six-party talks arrived in Pyongyang, but did not give further details.
Wu's trip follows one by Vice Foreign Minister Liu Zhenmin last month when he discussed resuming the talks with North Korean officials.
Seoul, Washington and Tokyo, however, refuse to return to talks for talks' sake.
They want Pyongyang to show sincerity about giving up its nuclear arms.
The North wants an unconditional resumption.
The six-party talks, involving the two Koreas, the U.S., China, Japan and Russia have been stalled since December 2008.
