US wants to see N Korea return to six-party talks

The Obama administration has said that it wants North Korea to return to six-party talks.



Washington: The Obama administration has said that it wants North Korea to return to six-party talks.

Refusing to draw conclusion on the sinking of a ship allegedly by North Korea till investigations continue, the Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs, PJ Crowley, on Wednesday said: "We want to see North Korea come back to the six-party process."

Asserting that the US is committed to this with its partners, Crowley said: "Clearly, provocative actions that North Korea takes have an impact on the broader environment. So I wouldn`t predict anything going forward. On the investigation itself, let`s find out and conclude what is responsible for the sinking of the ship, and we`ll draw implications from that."
Noting that ships don`t normally sink of their own accord; they can occasionally, Crowley said, "But that`s one of the reasons why we are supporting the South Korean effort. The ship has been raised and we should be able to answer these questions in time."
