Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon met US Special Representative
for North Korea Stephen Biegun at the Government Complex Seoul on
October 30. This was their second meeting since September 11.
Minister Cho said, “At a time when US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
visited North Korea and consultation between the US and the North is
underway, it is important to discuss ways to ensure that improvement
in inter-Korean relations keeps pace with the progress in relations
between the US and North Korea.”
Washington’s top nuclear envoy Biegun said, “We want the same thing
for the Korean Peninsula peace and stability, primarily the ―
denuclearization of North Korea.” “There are many initiatives that we
can cooperate on, and we are looking forward to working closely
between the Ministry and the US,” he added.
