S Korea’s Moon to send special envoy to N Korea next week: Yonhap




South Korean President Moon Jae-in will send a special envoy to Pyongyang next Wednesday to discuss plans to hold a summit with the North’s Kim Jong Un and nuclear disarmament, local media said Friday.

The unnamed envoy will visit the North’s capital city on September 5, Yonhap news agency said, citing a presidential spokesman.

Seoul proposed the envoy’s visit Friday morning and Pyongyang accepted it a few hours later, Kim Eui-kyeom said, adding they had not yet who the envoy will be.

“The envoy will have broad discussions over a detailed schedule for the inter-Korea summit, development of bilateral ties…And nuclear disarmament of the Korean peninsula,” Kim was quoted as saying.

Moon and Kim have met face-to-face twice now, the first during a historic summit at the border truce village of Panmunjom in April.

It was the first time a North Korean leader had ever crossed into the South. They met a second time in the truce village as they scrambled to salvage a summit between Kim and US president Donald Trump in Singapore which eventually went ahead.

They have since agreed to hold a third summit in Pyongyang at an unspecified date in September.
