The United States and South Korea have agreed to form a “working group” to address ongoing North Korea-related issues, a U.S. State Department official said during a briefing Tuesday.

The State Department’s Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun, in Seoul this week for talks with his counterparts, secured an agreement on “establishing a new working group that would further strengthen our close coordination” on a number of issues, Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino said Tuesday.
