Washington's new chief nuclear negotiator says the United States has restarted its own diplomatic channel with North Korea to secure the release of three American detainees.
Speaking at a forum in Washington on Thursday, Sydney Seiler (Sigh-ler) said Washington has been working through the "New York channel" as well as the Swedish Embassy in Pyongyang to resolve the issue.
The so-called "New York channel" refers to meetings between North Korea's UN delegation and U.S. officials.
Seiler (Sigh-ler) said the three cases have posed significant obstacles to U.S.-North Korea ties and urged Pyongyang to act in a humane and right way.
