South Korea's top nuclear envoy left for Beijing Tuesday for a second round of rare talks with his counterpart from north of the border.

Wi Sung-lac is scheduled to meet Wednesday with the chief nuclear negotiator of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Ri Yong-ho, for talks over ending Pyongyang's nuclear program.

According to Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency's reports, Wi said he would handle the talks in an "open and flexible" manner.

The meeting comes after the two envoys met in July on the sidelines of a regional security forum in Bali, Indonesia, their first talks in two years, and agreed to further their efforts to resume the long-stalled six-party talks aimed at ridding the DPRK of nuclear weapons.

Following the Bali meeting, DPRK vice foreign minister Kim Kye- gwan's traveled to New York for talks with his U.S. counterpart Stephen Bosworth, raising hopes long-stalled nuclear negotiations might resume soon.

The six-party talks were last held in December 2008.
