The top two U.S. negotiators for stalled nuclear talks with North Korea are traveling to Asia to discuss strategy with four other countries involved.
State Department spokesman Robert Wood said Tuesday that special envoy Stephen Bosworth and Ambassador Sung Kim will arrive in Beijing on Thursday. They will travel to Seoul on Friday, where they spend four days before flying to Tokyo on Monday and Moscow on Tuesday.
Wood said that the two U.S. diplomats have no plans to travel to North Korea.
North Korea says that it is finished with the six-nation negotiations on ending its nuclear programs. Following the U.N. Security Council's criticism of North Korea's launch of a long-range missile on April 5, it threatened to restart its nuclear activities.
