Talks Scheduled Friday In Washington, DC

Reuters reports three of the six nations engaged in long-term
talks on North Korea will meet in Washington, DC on Friday. The US
will be represented by Sung Kim, its new negotiator on the panel.
Japan's Akitaka Saiki will be there, as will Wi Sung-Lak of South
US State Department spokesman Gordon Duguid offered no agenda
details, but commented, "A launch of any type of vehicle we would

North Korea said Thursday if the international community imposes
sanctions, it will restart a nuclear plant which makes weapons

down has much to do with the current tense atmosphere.
China and Russia have chosen not to send envoys to today's
meeting in Washington, but are urging caution. China encourages all
parties to, "remain restrained and calm."
