美朝代表开始在日内瓦讨论核裁军 US, North Korea Nuclear Disarmament Talks Begin in Geneva

24 October, 2011

美国和朝鲜外交官星期一在瑞士日内瓦开始为期两天的会谈,讨论重新启动针对朝鲜核计划的六方会谈。美国代表团由即将离任的朝鲜问题特使博斯沃思和他的继任者格林·戴维斯率领。他们将向平壤表明华盛顿的立场,那就是平壤必须停止浓缩铀计划,并允许联合国武器核查人员在多边谈判恢复之前进入朝鲜。

朝鲜代表团由外交部副部长金桂冠率领。朝鲜代表团很可能受到朝鲜最高领导人金正日最近发表的观点的约束。金正日上个星期告诉俄通社-塔斯社说,六方谈判应该在没有先决条件的情况下迅速恢复。

U.S. and North Korean diplomats Monday began two days of talks in Geneva, Switzerland, about restarting six-party negotiations on Pyongyang's nuclear programs.The U.S. delegation is headed by outgoing special envoy for North Korea Stephen Bosworth and his successor, Glyn Davies. They will present Washington's position that Pyongyang must stop its uranium enrichment program and allow U.N. inspectors back into the country before the multilateral talks can resume.

North Korea's delegation, led by Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye-kwan, is likely to be bound by remarks from leader Kim Jong Il. He told Russia's state-run news agency Itar-Tass last week that talks should resume swiftly and without preconditions.
