SEOUL, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- The South Korean Foreign Ministry said Wednesday talks in April with U.S. officials would focus on ironing out details of a bilateral nuclear agreement.

U.S. and South Korean officials kicked off negotiations this week in the South Korean city of Daejeon, the sight of most of South Korea's nuclear research facilities.

The Yonhap News Agency reported Seoul expects to hold additional negotiations in April after this week's talks ended with little progress.

A 1974 bilateral nuclear treaty prohibits Seoul from enriching uranium or reprocessing spent nuclear fuel rods out of proliferation concerns. The South Korean government, however, wants the ban reversed because it wants to secure its nuclear fuel supplies.

Washington has expressed reservations out of concern for security on the Korean Peninsula.

They'd be better off waiting until Jan. 21, 2017.

Give the South Koreans the bomb so they can protect their own territory than reliance on the USFK to protect them. If the NK and SK want to nuke themselves to oblivion let them.
