US envoy says North Korea nuclear talks hit stalemate

Posted:

BEIJING (AP) -- The U.S. envoy to talks on ending North Korea nuclear programs says discussion have reached a stalemate.

Christopher Hill said Wednesday's talks with envoys from North Korea and four other nations made no progress on the tricky issue of verifying the country's accounting of its past atomic activities. Progress on that issue would be seen as a major step in the disarmament process.

Hill said the sides could not agree on a draft verification proposal submitted by China, the host of the six-nation talks.
