US, South Korea to Hold Talks on North’s Denuclearization

SEOUL – South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and her United States counterpart, Mike Pompeo, will hold talks in Washington on Thursday to discuss North Korea’s denuclearization among other issues, the South Korean Foreign Ministry said.

The talks between Kang and Pompeo will take place before midday (Washington time), foreign ministry spokesperson Noh Kyu-duk told reporters in Seoul.

Kang is on a visit to the US as the head of the South Korean delegation to attend the funeral of former US president George H.W. Bush.

The two are expected to discuss matters of common interest including “a joint strategy on North Korea,” Noh said, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

This will be the first meeting between the two in the last two months.

Previously, they had met on Oct. 7 after Pompeo’s visit to Pyongyang.

Among the matters to be discussed on Thursday, include an apparent stalemate in the dialogue with Pyongyang, the possibility of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s Seoul visit and his second summit with US President Donald Trump.

Trump had said on Sunday he planned to hold a second summit with Kim that could take place in January or February and three places were being considered for the meeting.

However, lack of progress in the denuclearization talks because of the absence of a roadmap in the agreement signed by the two leaders in Singapore in June has prolonged any decision on the second summit.

The US has demanded Pyongyang to take substantial steps toward denuclearization while the latter has asked for security guarantees before it signs any peace agreement.
