SEOUL, June 18 (Yonhap) -- The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) may hold talks with North Korean officials on Monday to discuss a trip to the communist nation by a group of its inspectors to verify the shutdown of North Korea's key nuclear facilities, top U.S. nuclear envoy Christopher Hill said.

"I talked to IAEA today and I know there is going to be contact ... with DPRK representatives as early as today, so they may be able to tell us pretty soon when they will be able to get to Pyongyang," Hill told reporters in Seoul before heading to a meeting with his South Korean counterpart, Chun Yung-woo.
