South Korea: South Korean delegation flies northwards in bid to lead US, N. Korea talks

Envoys representing South Korea regrouped at the Seoul Air Base in Seongnam on Monday before leaving for North Korea, with the aim to persuade Pyongyang to hold talks with the United States towards nuclear disarmament and peace on the Korean peninsula. Headed by President Moon Jae-in's national security director Chung Eui-yong, the 10-member delegation was seen meeting at the airport before... Еще taking off for a two-day trip that may include a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. If that meeting were to be realised, the delegation members would be the first South Korean officials to meet Kim since he took power in late 2011. The trip is part of Moon's pursuit of rapprochement between the two countries after North Korea participated in last month's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. Speaking in Pyeongchang on February 18, Moon said he hoped that the «many achievements» in advancing inter-Korean talks would eventually lead to a better common sense and the possibility for dialogue between the United States and North Korea, with the end-goal of denuclearising the peninsula.
