A U.S. negotiator said a “useful start” was made Saturday during talks aimed at freezing North Korean missile exports and production.
“We made a useful start today and we’re going to meet again tomorrow,” deputy assistant secretary of state Robert Einhorn said as he left the U.S. Embassy.
Einhorn declined to elaborate on what the two parties discussed during four hours of talks.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Glyn Davies said Friday that the Clinton administration wants North Korea to curb missile sales to the Middle East and join an international agreement to restrict exports of such weapons.
Davies said the United States has evidence of North Korean missile sales to Iran and Syria.
