SEOUL, June 25 (Xinhua) -- South Korea's top nuclear envoy is set to visit the United States next Monday to discuss the moribund six-way nuclear talks and the sinking of a South Korean warship, the country's foreign ministry said here Friday.

Wi Sung-lac is scheduled to visit Washington on his way back from the G20 meetings in Canada, and will head back home on July 2.

He is expected to meet with senior U.S. officials including Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg and U.S. chief nuclear envoy Stephen Bosworth to discuss about resuming the six-party talks and measures to deal with the warship sinking, currently blamed on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s torpedo attack.
