North Korea’s envoy to the six-party talks Kim Kye-gwan (C) speaks to the media after a meeting with a Chinese foreign ministry counterpart in Beijing, February 11, 2010. Sanctions on North Korea will not be removed until Pyongyang returns to disarmament talks and takes serious steps towards scrapping its nuclear arms programme, the foreign ministers of South Korea and Japan said on Thursday. The comments come as the North’s top nuclear envoy is in Beijing in a sign the destitute state may soon end its year-long boycott of six-country disarmament-for-aid nuclear talks hosted by its key ally, China.
