WASHINGTON (AP) - A U.S. official says Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is planning to send the administration's new envoy on North Korean policy to consult in Moscow and Asian capitals.
The official who disclosed the plan did so on condition of anonymity because an announcement was pending.
Clinton is expected to announce at the State Department today that Stephen Bosworth will travel to the capitals of four countries that have been working with Washington to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear program. Those four are Russia, Japan, China and South Korea.
Bosworth, a former U.S. ambassador to South Korea, was named last month as the administration's special envoy to deal with U.S. policy on North Korea.
