South Korea to balance dialogue, sanctions in North Korea policy: special envoy
Seoul to maintain so-called “two-track approach,” Lee Do-hoon tells Jeju Forum

The Moon Jae-in government will adhere to a “two-track approach” and seek to simultaneously pursue dialogue and sanctions as its policy towards North Korea, the South's chief nuclear envoy Lee Do-hoon told an audience at the Jeju Forum on Thursday.  

Lee, whose full title is Special Representative for Korean Penisula Peace and Security Affairs, said the “current government’s strategy” was based on the lessons learned from past negotiations and the special circumstances that the peninsula faces.
