Meeting in Canada aims to keep up pressure on North Korea - State Dept

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A meeting of foreign ministers in Canada next week to discuss diplomatic efforts on the Korean Peninsula aims to exert continued pressure on Pyongyang over its nuclear program, the U.S. State Department said on Thursday.

China and Russia will not be represented at the Vancouver meeting but will be given a readout of the discussions, Brian Hook, the department’s director of policy planning, said at a news briefing.
