美朝会谈后朝核外交步伐加快 Nuclear Diplomacy Accelerates After US-North Korea Talks

26 October, 2011

与朝鲜核项目有关的外交步伐星期三有所加快。此前一天在日内瓦,美朝双方举行的谈判被形容为是“积极的”。中国副总理李克强在首尔会晤了韩国总统李明博。在此之前,李克强与朝鲜领导人金正日在平壤举行了会谈。韩国核问题特使前往俄罗斯,与俄罗斯方面讨论最新进展。美国国防部长利昂.帕内塔星期三抵达首尔,参加定期国防对话,很有可能也会讨论重新启动针对朝鲜核项目六方会谈的最新一轮努力。

The pace of Asian nuclear diplomacy accelerated Wednesday, a day after what were described as "positive" talks in Geneva between U.S. and North Korean negotiators.Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang met in Seoul with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak after completing talks in Pyongyang with North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. And South Korea's top nuclear envoy flew to Russia to discuss the latest progress with his Russian counterpart.U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who arrived Wednesday in Seoul for regular defense talks, is also likely to discuss the latest round of efforts to re-start six-nation negotiations on North Korea's nuclear programs.
