South Korea's chief nuclear envoy says he's discussing the conditions under which to resume the six-party talks on denuclearizing North Korea with the U.S. and China.
In Washington Sunday, Hwang Joon-kook said talks with Pyongyang cannot restart unconditionally, after the regime conducted three nuclear tests, two of which took place since the talks were suspended five years ago.
The envoy's remarks hint at possible progress on the matter, ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's expected visit to Seoul this month.
As for Tokyo agreeing to lift sanctions if Pyongyang reopens a probe into the abduction of Japanese nationals, Hwang said Seoul and Washington continue to cooperate with Tokyo on the North, and that he plans to exchange assessments of the deal with officials in Washington.
Hwang is set to meet U.S. negotiator Glyn Davies on Monday.
