As was posted previously, it appears that the 6 Party Talks are set to resume February 8th. In response to a point made below regarding the relative lack of coverage of the event, one reason for this appears to be that China, the host, has yet to make an official announcement. This has at least deterred the U.S. from officially announcing the next round of the talks. For more, see the link below...
Also, it appears that a partial lifting on the freeze on assets at Banco Delta Asia - the purported reason for North Korea boycotting the talks to begin with, and subsequently testing a bomb last fall - may be in the works as part of the deal to achieve NK's disarmament/dismantlement. Talks are occurring between U.S. and NK officials in Beijing today, outside of the 6PT forum. It appears to me that we're seeing some quiet bilateral meetings between Washington and Pyongyang. With any luck, these developments will yield some progress in denuclearization discussions.
