South Korean special envoys depart for Pyongyang

5 September 2018

A group of South Korean special envoys led by the top security adviser to President Moon Jae-in, departed for North Korea on Wednesday to discuss the leaders' third summit later this month. The envoy said on Tuesday he would deliver a letter from Moon to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un when he visits the North, without elaborating on its contents.

He also said he wanted to discuss with Pyongyang officials ways to achieve the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and that Seoul will continue to push for a joint declaration of an end to the 1950-53 Korean War this year with the United States.
