US envoy leaves for China for NKorea talks

US envoy leaves for China for NKorea talks

U.S. officials are traveling to China to discuss U.N. sanctions slapped on North Korea for a nuclear test last month.
The State Department says the delegation headed by Philip Goldberg will leave Tuesday. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton briefed Goldberg before his trip.
A new U.N. resolution seeks to stop North Korea's trading of banned weapons by requiring U.N. member states to request inspections of ships suspected of carrying prohibited cargo.
China's cooperation in enforcing sanctions against its neighbor is seen as crucial to increasing pressure meant to push the North back to nuclear disarmament talks.
Goldberg, a former ambassador, is in charge of coordinating implementation of sanctions against the North.
