North Korean leader Kim Jong Il has told a Chinese envoy that his country will return to six-party talks if the United States shows sincerity and if certain conditions are met.
Wang Jiarui, the head of the Chinese Communist Party's international department, returned to Beijing from Pyongyang Tuesday.

"We talked a lot, in depth and the talks were also very sincere and frank."
The Chinese envoy brought a message from President Hu Jintao, which said it is in China and North Korea's "fundamental interests" to continue working towards peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.
Wang Jiarui says he was told by Kim Jong Il that North Korea's position on denuclearization of the Korean peninsula remains unchanged.

"He said the DPRK has never opposed the six-party talks. He hopes that all sides can make efforts to create the right conditions. He said if the conditions were met, the DPRK would like to come back to the table for talks at any time."
It was the first public comment by the North Korean leader since the country pulled out of the nuclear talks and announced it had nuclear weapons earlier this month.
The announcement triggered a flurry of diplomatic activity to bring North Korea back to the process.
Ning Fukui, the Chinese foreign ministry ambassador on the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula, says everything that has happened around the six-party talks recently shows that the issue is very complicated.

"The outlook for the six-party talks still faces opportunities and challenges. As for when the talks can be resumed still depends on efforts by all sides. All sides should take their respective responsibilities for it."
The US State Department says the US is ready to resume the talks "without preconditions".
