Experts To Brief On N. Korea Following Nuke Test

A group of four U.S. experts have just returned from North Korea and will share a briefing at the National Press Club in Washington.

Charles L. (Jack) Pritchard, Siegfried S. (Sig) Hecker, and Robert (Bob) Carlin visited North Korea from Oct. 31 through Nov. 4. They will present their findings from discussions with senior officials from the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Yongbyon Nuclear Facilities, and key North Korean economic institutes.

The event will take place Wednesday, Nov. 15, 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the National Press Club Ballroom. Press Club events are broadcast on NPR radio and C-SPAN television.

The group's four-day visit to North Korea came immediately after Pyongyang announced its intention to return to the Six Party Talks. The trip to North Korea was organized and led by John Lewis of Stanford University's Center for International Security and Cooperation, who has visited North Korea 14 times.
