The United States has invited the Vice Foreign Minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea for talks on the possible resumption of the six-party negotiations on nuclear issues. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made the statement after attending the ASEAN Regional Forum in Indonesia on Sunday.

The statement said DPRK Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kae-gwan will meet with an inter-agency team of US officials for discussions. South Korea's chief nuclear envoy Wi Sung-lac and his DPRK counterpart Ri Yong-ho held a bilateral meeting in Bali on Friday. During the meeting, the two sides agreed to work to resume the long-stalled talks. The six-party talks on nuclear issues, involving the DPRK, South Korea, China, the United States, Japan and Russia, have been stalled since late 2008.
