SEOUL -- South Korea's top security advisor left for the United States Tuesday for talks on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s nuclear program, a report here said.

Chun Young-woo will pay a three-day visit to Washington involving meetings with officials including US National Security Adviser Tom Donilon and Stephen Bosworth, Washington's envoy for the DPRK, according to Yonhap News Agency.

The visit, at the invitation of Donilon, comes after Washington and Pyongyang officials held rare talks over resuming multilateral negotiations aimed at ridding the DPRK of its nuclear program.

The top presidential security adviser is expected to coordinate policies with US counterparts amid rising expectations for the resumption of the six-party talks, according to the report.
