SEOUL, Sept. 29 (Yonhap) -- North Korea said Thursday its first vice foreign minister Kim Kye-gwan and his Russian counterpart Andrey Denisov held talks in Pyongyang.

The move comes after Kim and his delegation met Stephen Bosworth, Washington's point man on Pyongyang, in New York in July, stemming a 17-month hiatus, as part of efforts to revive the six-party negotiations on the communist nation's nuclear weapons program.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), North's state media, said the visiting Russian official made a tribute at the Liberation Tower and watched Arirang, a gymnastics and artistic performance, on the second day of his visit.

The KCNA, however, did not report on the agenda or the venue of the talks.
