Kathleen Stephens, U.S. ambassador to South Korea, told a forum here that the trip will "take place in the context of the six-party talks with the purpose of facilitating early resumption of the six-party talks," which include the two Koreas, Japan, Russia, China and the U.S.

The trip will also focus on securing North Korea's reaffirmation of a 2005 six-party agreement, she said, adding it includes Pyongyang's "commitment to the verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in a peaceful manner."
