ROK's top nuke envoy to visit US for discussion on Korean Peninsula's nuke issue
The Republic of Korea (ROK)'s top nuclear envoy will visit the US this week to discuss the Korean Peninsula's nuclear issue, Seoul's foreign ministry said Monday.
Lee Do-hoon, special representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs, will visit Washington from Wednesday to Friday.
During the visit, Lee will meet with his US counterpart Joseph Yun, a chief negotiator at the six-party talks for the denuclearized Korean Peninsula.
Lee will also meet with key US government figures in charge of Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) affairs, according to the ministry.
The ROK envoy will hold an in-depth discussion with US officials on ways to peacefully resolve the peninsula's nuclear issue and improve inter-Korean relations.
Lee's visit to Washington would come a day after the high-level talks between the ROK and DPRK, scheduled to be held Tuesday in the truce village of Panmunjom.
