Foreign ministers of the six countries in talks on ending North Korea's nuclear arms plans were expected to hold their first meeting next week at a regional forum in Singapore, a diplomatic source in Seoul said on Friday.

The unprecedented meeting would come as North Korea has released a long-delayed accounting of its murky nuclear weapons programme and the United States has moved to take the communist country off of a State Department terrorism blacklist.

"It is likely that the foreign ministers of the six-party talks (that include the two Koreas, China, Japan, Russia and the United States) will meet in Singapore," the source told Reuters.
