At that meeting, he had spurned calls to return to nuclear talks and threatened to quit the forum altogether, angry about criticism of its missile tests on July 5.
 
Paek reportedly told the closed-door forum that the criticisms ran counter to the members’ tradition of seeking consensus.
 
It is not clear who will take his place.
