A special envoy appointed by South Korean President Moon Jae-in travelled to North Korea by plane Wednesday morning for a one-day visit aimed at booking a third inter-Korean summit of 2018 and smoothing the way for denuclearization progress.
Chung Eui-yong, who also serves as Moon’s security advisor, was joined by the same four delegates who embarked on a similar mission to the North in March, a month before the first inter-Korean summit in over a decade.
They carried with them a personal letter from Moon for North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un, although it was not clear if they would meet him in person as they did earlier this year.
Chung told reporters Tuesday that his focus would be on setting a date for this month’s agreed Moon-Kim summit in Pyongyang as well as discussing “ways to completely denuclearize” the Korean Peninsula.
Moon held a phone conversation with Trump Tuesday to confirm their joint efforts to seek peace and denuclearization on the peninsula.
