Foreign ministers of the six countries negotiating North Korea's nuclear disarmament
Foreign ministers of the six countries negotiating North Korea's nuclear disarmament will meet in Singapore on July 24, a Russian Foreign Ministry source said on Friday.

The meeting will be held on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Regional Forum, the source told reporters, confirming an earlier statement from a South Korean government official.

The six countries involved in the talks - Russia, the United States, China, Japan and the two Koreas - have never yet sent their top diplomats to the negotiations, which have been running since 2003.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will be in Singapore on July 23-24 for a Russia-ASEAN session, and for the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), which brings together the 10 ASEAN member states plus 17 other countries, including all six parties to the North Korea talks.

The latest round of talks on North Korea was held on July 10-12 in Beijing. The negotiations were given a boost by North Korea's agreement to scrap its nuclear reactors by the end of October, and to allow foreign experts to visit facilities to verify information released by the communist state on its past nuclear activities.

The South Korean official had named July 23 as the likely date for the ministerial meeting.
