Top diplomats of S. Korea, US to hold talks in Washington this week


0

The top diplomats of South Korea and the United States will hold talks in Washington later this week to discuss diplomacy with North Korea following last month’s unfruitful summit between Washington and Pyongyang, Seoul’s foreign ministry said Wednesday.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are set to meet Friday (Washington time) after she attends a U.N. ministerial meeting on peace-keeping in New York the same day.

Kang and Pompeo will meet face-to-face for the first time since the collapse of the second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Hanoi on Feb. 27 and 28.

The highly anticipated summit fell apart as the two sides failed to bridge their differences on Pyongyang’s denuclearization and Washington’s sanctions relief.

Since then, concerns have persisted that the US and the North could drift toward another deadlock in their nuclear negotiations.

Seoul has been seeking way to facilitate the resumption of Washington-Pyongyang talks. (Yonhap)
