TOKYO, October 17 (RIA Novosti) - A working group for economic and energy cooperation with North Korea will hold a regular session in the reclusive state on October 22-23, the South Korean foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

Representatives of Russia, the U.S., China, North Korea, South Korea and Japan will meet at a mountain resort in the North to discuss an aid-for-disarmament deal with the Communist regime.

The latest session of the working group, set up along with four other working groups following the results of the February round of six-nation talks, took place in August.

At the six-nation talks held in February between North and South Korea, China, Russia, Japan and the United States, Pyongyang agreed to close its nuclear reactor in return for international aid.

North Korea conducted its first nuclear bomb test last October.

Pyongyang has already received 50,000 metric tons of fuel oil from its wealthier southern neighbor for its thermal power plants as an incentive for the shutdown of its nuclear facility at Yongbyon, and is to receive a total of 950,000 metric tons from China, Russia and the U.S. in exchange for disabling all its nuclear programs and facilities by the end of the year.
