The chief US nuclear envoy is in Beijing at the start of his latest Asian tour.

His visit is aimed at pushing denuclearization on the Korean peninsula.

Chris Hill says the DPRK needs to provide a complete and correct declaration of its nuclear programmes to revive a disarmament process that has been stalled since the end of last year.

Hill says the DPRK has disabled its main Yongbyon nuclear reactor, but has not yet provided a full declaration of its nuclear activities.

Earlier this month, the US said it was ready to open full diplomatic ties with the DPRK if it completely gives up its nuclear weapons and programs.
