ImageWASHINGTON (AFP) — US and Chinese officials held talks in Washington about North Korea's nuclear disarmament, Iran's nuclear ambitions, fallout from attacks in India and Zimbabwe's crisis, it was reported Tuesday.

Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte and China's State Councilor Dai Bingguo led the talks on the each side during the sixth round Monday of the US-China Senior Dialogue, the State Department said in a statement.

They discussed "the tensions in South Asia" after last month's attacks in Mumbai, Iran's defiance of UN Security Council resolutions aimed at "dissuading its pursuit of nuclear weapons," and the humanitarian crisis in Zimbabwe, it said.

"The two also exchanged views on bilateral military and nonproliferation issues, human rights, and stability in Asia, including recent developments in the six-party Talks to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula," it added.

The parties in the talks are the United States, China, South Korea, North Korea, Japan and Russia.

Previous rounds of the Senior Dialogue were held in Beijing in August 2005, Washington in December 2005, Beijing in October 2006, Washington in June 2007, and Guiyang in January 2008, the statement said.
