Statement by the Press Secretary/Director-General for Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on the Six-Party Talks

December 31, 2007

  1. North Korea committed to provide a complete and correct declaration of all its nuclear programs by December 31, 2007, in the document adopted by the Six-Party Talks on October 3, 2007. It is unfortunate that this declaration has not been provided yet. North Korea needs to provide a complete and correct declaration of all its nuclear programs as quickly as possible, and steadily carry out, and complete at an early date, disablement of the three nuclear facilities at Yongbyon while taking safety considerations into account.
     
  2. The Government of Japan will continue to make efforts, together with the U.S. and other relevant countries, towards the early implementation of the Second-phase actions agreed at the Six-Party Talks and the complete implementation of the September 2005 Joint Statement of the Six-Party Talks.
