GENEVA (AP) — The U.S. envoy leading talks with North Korea on Pyongyang’s nuclear program said on Tuesday that two days of meetings in Geneva had narrowed differences between the two sides.

But Stephen Bosworth, U.S. special envoy for North Korea polilcy, said no agreement had been reached reached on formally resuming negotiations, either bilaterally or in the so-called six-party format that also includes China, Japan, Russia and South Korea.

Mr. Bosworth says the two sides will remain in touch through North Korea’s mission to the United Nations in New York.

U.S. diplomats want North Korea to adhere to a 2005 agreement it reneged on that required verifiable denuclearization in exchange for better relations with its Asian neighbors.
