President Moon Jae-in will hold a meeting with his security ministers Tuesday, one day before he sends his special envoy to Pyongyang to arrange a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, officials said.
The meeting, set for 4 p.m., will be attended by Moon's national security adviser Chung Eui-yong, National Intelligence Service Director Suh Hoon, Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha, Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon and Defense Minister Song Young-moo, officials said.
Chung is scheduled to make a one-day trip to Pyongyang in his capacity as Moon's special envoy for talks on setting the date for an agreed-upon summit between Moon and Kim.
Chung's five-member delegation is also expected to discuss with North Korean officials ways to break the impasse in the stalled denuclearization negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang. (Yonhap News)
