The 100-minute meeting took place two days before the latest Six-Party Talks and was headed by Song Min-soon, deputy foreign minister of the Republic of Korea (ROK) and his counterpart Kim Kye-gwan from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Reports from the ROK's media said the two sides agreed to hold bilateral meetings throughout the Six-Party Talks and to co-operate to bring concrete results.

The latest round of the Six-Party Talks, involving China, the DPRK, the United States, the ROK, Russia and Japan, is set to begin tomorrow morning, following a reception hosted by China due to take place tonight.

US Assistant Secretary of State Christopher Hill said the US is willing to hold talks with other participants to push forward multi-lateral negotiations.

Hill made the remarks in the St. Regis Hotel Beijing yesterday afternoon soon after his arrival.

"I wouldn't expect this to be the last set of negotiations," Hill said. "We would like to make some measurable progress, progress that we can build on for subsequent negotiations."
