SEOUL, July 21 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Seoul Wednesday morning for inaugural high- level security talks later in the afternoon.

Clinton is scheduled to join U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and South Korea's foreign and defense ministers for the so- called "two plus two" security talks at four p.m. local time, the first such meeting designed to show solidarity between Seoul and Washington and deliver a message to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), an apparent culprit of the March 26 sinking of a South Korean warship.

Prior to the scheduled talks, Clinton, Gates and their South Korean counterparts are set to pay a visit to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) that divides the Korean peninsula, the first such a trip to be made by U.S. foreign and defense chiefs together.

Clinton and Gates are also scheduled to visit War Memorial of Korea in Seoul, where they will pay tributes to U.N. troops killed in the 1950-53 Korean War and 46 South Korean sailors sacrificed in the sinking.
