BEIJING, Aug. 6 (Yonhap) -- A recent visit by Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao to North Korea is expected to help bring Pyongyang back to the six-party talks on ending the North's nuclear weapons program, a Chinese expert said Tuesday.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un held talks with Li on July 26 at a time when China has grown increasingly frustrated with its unpredictable neighbor, particularly after the North's third nuclear test in February. Following the talks, both Kim and Li reportedly expressed their support for reconvening the six-party talks.
