NEW YORK (CNN) -- Informal talks between the United States
and North and South Korea concluded Saturday with no
agreement to resume broader negotiations.
The talks are aimed at getting the North and South to sign a
peace treaty that would replace the armistice reached at the
end of the 1950-53 Korean War. The goal is to include China
in the negotiations.
The North Koreans said they are awaiting the go-ahead from
Pyongyang before planning those broader talks. North Korean
spokesman Han Song Ryol told CNN that the head of the North
Korean delegation, Kim Gye Gwan, would stay in New York until
at least Monday for a possible high-level meeting.
