US Envoy to North Korea Seeks Denuclearization Progress in Seoul

SEOUL – A special envoy of the United States to North Korea was received on Tuesday by the Foreign Minister of South Korea in Seoul, the first stop on his Northeast Asia tour, in which he seeks to make progress in the denuclearization of North Korea.

Stephen Biegun paid a courtesy visit to Kang Kyung-wha before meeting with his South Korean counterpart, Lee Do-hoon, at the start of his tour in which he is seeking ways to “make progress in denuclearization and (bring) stable peace to the Korean Peninsula,” the US envoy said on Tuesday in statements collected by South Korea’s Yonhap news agency.

“We have some hard work to do,” Biegun said at the beginning of his meeting with Lee.

Biegun added that it is necessary to “do everything we can to make the most of this moment of opportunity” created by the back-to-back summits between the two Koreas and the United States.

The diplomat and businessman, appointed to the post in August, cited a proverb by Aristotle: “The beginning is half done,” to highlight what has been achieved to date, adding that “what we need to do is to finish the job.”

Lee agreed that the allies face challenges and opportunities in denuclearization, and stressed the need to maintain close contact during that process.

The American envoy arrived in South Korea on Monday, the first stop on his Northeast Asia tour, which will conclude on Sept. 15, during which he will also visit China and Japan.
