S.Korean president's special envoys to visit DPRK on March 5

S.Korean president's special envoys to visit DPRK on March 5

About the same time, as noted in the White house, he said during a telephone conversation with President of South Korea moon Genina.

"It seems that the delegation's mission will be two-fold".

In Pyongyang, "the special envoys will have comprehensive talks with the North on creating the environment for North Korean-United States dialogue for denuclearization, as well as on improving inter-Korean relations", said Mr. Yoon, the spokesman.

However, the South Korean president responded by stressing the need for talks between Pyongyang and Washington, dulling hopes for an imminent inter-Korean summit - which would be the third of its kind and first in over a decade. Suh Hoon, director of the country's intelligence agency, was included in the delegation.

Two months after his secret visit to Pyongyang, South Korea and the DPRK announced the joint communique on July 4, 1972, on three principles of the reunification of the two Koreas: independence, peaceful reunification, and great national unity.

"I won't rule out direct talks with Kim Jong Un".

Moon was even personally invited to Pyongyang by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's sister.

The delegation also includes NIS official Kim Sang-gyun, Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung, and Yun Kyun-young, a presidential official on state affairs.

Mr. Trump's administration says it is determined not to repeat what it calls the mistakes of its predecessors, who tried both dialogue and sanctions but failed to stop the North's nuclear program.

North Korea remains unsurprisingly persistent with its nuclear program in the face of new U.S. sanctions - and one former top NSA official claims cryptocurrencies are to blame.

"Now we are talking and they, by the way, called up a couple of days ago".

Kim Yo Jong, during her visit last month, extended her brother's invitation for Moon to visit Pyongyang for a summit.

However, while Pyongyang intends to resolve issues in a diplomatic and peaceful way, it will "neither beg for dialogue nor evade the military option claimed by the USA", he said.

In a statement released Sunday from North Korea's Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson, the country accused the U.S. of "taking preposterous action by continuing to trumpet an insistence that it will not have dialogue unless a right condition is met and that it will keep watching if we have intention to abandon nuclear weapons and missiles and so on".

The delegation will fly into Pyongyang on a special flight Monday afternoon, and stay for one night.
