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.

meeting in Washington, but are urging caution. China encourages all
parties to, "remain restrained and calm."
