North Korean Nuclear Talks Continue

5 August 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Talks on ending North Korea's nuclear program enter an 11th day today in Beijing.

No progress has been reported at the talks involving negotiators from the United States, Russia, Japan, the two Koreas, and host China.

It has been the longest of the four rounds of negotiations held since the crisis began nearly three years ago.

On 4 August, North Korea's envoy at the talks said that Pyongyang wants to have the right to maintain "peaceful nuclear activities."

Kim Kye Gwan said this right was allowed every other country in the world.

RFE/RL has been declared an "undesirable organization" by the Russian government.
