Top nuclear envoys from the Republic of Korea (ROK) and the United States held talks Sunday ahead of negotiations between the U.S. and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) over a second summit between their leaders slated for late this month, Seoul's foreign ministry said.

Special Representative for the Korean Peninsula and Security Affairs Lee Do-hoon met his U.S. counterpart Stephen Biegun hours after Biegun arrived in Seoul, Yonhap reports. 

It is reported that the two discussed the upcoming negotiations with Pyongyang including the agenda, for the second U.S.-DPRK summit.

Biegun will also hold meetings with his DPRK counterpart Kim Hyok Chol. The two representatives are expected to meet on Tuesday at the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjom or in the DPRK capital, Pyongyang.

On Monday, the U.S. envoy plans to visit the ROK presidential office Cheong Wa Dae for a meeting with Chung Eui-yong, the national security adviser.

U.S. President Donald Trump said that the date and location of this second summit have been decided and will be announced within this week, while the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the venue is "someplace in Asia."
