South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-Se brushed off  a reported North Korean offer to resume nuclear disarmament talks, saying he would first need to see evidence of its sincerity.

 

Yun's remarks followed a visit to China by a top North Korean envoy, who brought a personal letter from leader Kim Jong-Un to Chinese President Xi Jinping.

 

Chinese state media said the letter stated the North's willingness to resume long-stalled six-party talks on denuclearisation involving China, the two Koreas, the United States, Russia and Japan.

 

The reported message was greeted with scepticism in South Korea, where observers saw it as an effort by the North to appease its key ally Beijing rather than a genuine signal of intent.
