U.S. Official Sees Progress in Talks

October 23, 1998|From Times Wire Reports

North Korea sounded a protest over planned U.S.-South Korean military maneuvers but joined in daylong talks in Geneva on drafting a permanent peace for the Korean peninsula. A U.S. official said after morning and afternoon sessions that there is a possibility of a "significant procedural" agreement on organizing the talks by the end of this round of negotiations, scheduled for Sunday. The delegations from the two Koreas, China and the United States have twice failed to reach an agreement that would allow them to begin talking about a peace treaty.
