North Korea nuke envoys discuss verifying past activity

BEIJING (AP) -- He admits there's still a long way to go. But U.S. envoy Christopher Hill says it would be "an important milestone" if a draft proposal for verifying North Korea's accounting of its nuclear program is ironed out.

China today distributed a draft verification agreement at the six-country nuclear talks in Beijing. Verification has been the main focus of the latest round of meetings. They began yesterday with North Korea refusing to let outside inspectors take samples from its main nuclear complex.

Another day of meetings is scheduled tomorrow.
