Wu Dawei, China's special representative for Pyongyang policy, will arrive in Washington this weekend, Seoul-based Yonhap News Agency quoted a U.S. government official as saying Thursday.

Wu will "visit Washington April 21-24 for consultations with (U.S.) Special Representative for North Korea Policy Glyn Davies and other U.S. officials," the official told Yonhap News Agency on condition of anonymity.

Wu's trip to the U.S. is rare. He made his last official trip here in 2010 to meet with Stephen Bosworth, the predecessor of Davies.

"Both the United States and China agree on the fundamental importance of a denuclearized North Korea.”the official said.

Wu is chairman of the now-suspended six-way talks on DPRK's nuclear program, which also involve South Korea, Japan and Russia.

Meanwhile, Japan's chief delegate to the six-way dialogue, Shinsuke Sugiyama, is also scheduled to visit the U.S. capital this week for a meeting with Davies.

These are separate bilateral meetings. No trilateral meetings are planned," the official said.
