Unification Minister Kim meets with U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun

Unification Minister Kim Yeon Chul met with U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun at the Government Complex Seoul on August 21.

Minister Kim emphasized that “Restoring trust is important at a time when we need to turn the current deadlock into the phase of negotiations,” adding, “The ROK and the US should closely work together to build such trust and improve inter-Korean relations and North Korea-US relations.”

Biegun expressed “deep gratitude to the ROK government for its cooperation in continuing diplomatic efforts” and underscored, “It is important for Seoul and Washington to work together to make progress in the peace process on the Korean Peninsula.”

Both sides shared the view that not only the ROK and the US but also concerned countries must closely work together to realize complete denuclearization and establish lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, and they agreed to cooperate more closely with each other to resume negotiations and make progress in the peace process.
