US, South Korean Foreign Ministers Discuss Upcoming Kim, Moon Summit

SEOUL – The South Korean foreign minister briefed on Tuesday her American counterpart on preparations for the upcoming inter-Korean summit scheduled for September in Pyongyang.

Kang Kyung-wha spoke to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo by telephone to discuss the agreement reached on Monday between North and South Korea to hold what will be the third meeting between the countries’ leaders Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un, the South Korean foreign ministry said in a statement.

The officials also exchanged views on the latest developments on the Korean Peninsula and on the relations between North and South Korea.

Kang and Pompeo “agreed to closely cooperate over the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the establishment of an enduring peace regime,” the South Korean ministry added.

This will be the third meeting between Moon and Kim since the start of a rapprochement process this year and comes at a time when talks between Pyongyang and Washington for the denuclearization of the regime seem to have come to a standstill.

In recent days, the US has urged North Korea to accelerate concrete steps towards denuclearization, while Pyongyang has reiterated its call for a peace treaty to put an end to the Korean War, which concluded with an armistice, arguing that it was necessary to advance its disarmament.

Meetings between Seoul and Pyongyang will continue in order to establish the exact date the summit will take place, the South Korean unification ministry announced on Tuesday.
