Kuala Lumpur, March 11 (QNA) – Malaysia will in the coming days begin formal talks with North Korea on the return of nine Malaysians stranded in Pyongyang, Malaysian FOREIGN MINISTER said on Saturday.

Foreign Minister Anifah Aman said North Korea had indicated they were ready to start negotiations. “They want to start talking. We do not know what their demands are – we need to figure out what we can do to get the best result,” he told reporters on Saturday. 
He said many countries had offered to mediate between the two but that “no countries will act as a third party” or mediator. He added no time or location had been set yet for the official negotiations.
North Korea barred Malaysians from leaving the country on Tuesday as relations soured over Malaysia’s probe into the murder of Kim, the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. (QNA)
