WASHINGTON, May 28 (Yonhap) -- The U.S. State Department confirmed Tuesday that it is replacing Washington's top negotiator in the thorny talks with South Korea on their civilian nuclear cooperation.
"We can confirm that Special Advisor Robert Einhorn is leaving the State Department," a department official told Yonhap News Agency, requesting anonymity.
Over the past two years, Einhorn, the department's nonproliferation czar, has led U.S. negotiations with South Korea on revising their accord on nuclear energy.
