Ri said he met with his Chinese counterpart Wu Dawei in Beijing but did not give details about their talks.

North Korea said on Friday that it would fire an observation satellite into space on a new rocket as part of celebrations next month of the 100th anniversary of late President Kim Il Sung's birth.

The moratorium agreement was seen at the time as a promising step toward better relations between Washington and Pyongyang and progress toward restarting six-nation talks on North Korean nuclear disarmanent.

Nuland said Monday the US is “heartened” that the other parties in the talks, including China and Russia, had made clear they regard the launch as a bad idea, violating North Korea's international obligations.

“We are hoping and expecting that the DPRK will take that to heart,” Nuland said.
