State Dep't: US to meet North Koreans in Beijing

WASHINGTON DC (AP) -

The State Department says a U.S. envoy will hold talks with North Korea on its nuclear program in Beijing next week.

Envoy for North Korea Glyn Davies will meet Feb. 23 with North Korean First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan.

It will be the first such U.S.-North Korea talks since the Dec. 17 death of longtime North Korean leader Kim Jong Il.

The talks are aimed at restarting multination aid-for-disarmament negotiations on North Korea's nuclear program.
