SEOUL, July 23 (Xinhua) -- Foreign ministers from South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a brief meeting on Saturday in Bali, Indonesia, according to Seoul's Yonhap News Agency.

South Korean foreign minister Kim Sung-hwan met briefly with his DPRK counterpart Pak Ui-chun on the sidelines of the ASEAN Regional Forum, South Korean officials were quoted as saying.

"Before entering a session of the ASEAN Regional Forum this morning, Minister Kim had a brief talk with Pak," Yonhap reported, citing an unnamed South Korean official.

The brief meeting came a day after South Korea's chief nuclear envoy Wi Sung-lac and his newly appointed DPRK counterpart Ri Yong-ho held a bilateral meeting in Bali. During the meeting, the two sides agreed to work to resume the long-stalled six-party talks on denuclearization in the Korean Peninsula.

Friday's meeting, which lasted for more than one hour, was " friendly and constructive" , according to Wi.

He said the two sides made clear their own stances and both of them would make efforts to hold consultations for denuclearization and pave the way for the resumption of the stalled six-party talks.

The six-party talks, involving the DPRK, South Korea, China, the United States, Japan and Russia, have been stalled since late 2008.
