Top US official on North Korea policy to visit Seoul June 19 to 23

In first trip to South Korea since U.S.-ROK summit in May, Sung Kim set to discuss denuclearization and alliance issues

Sung Kim, Washington’s new special representative for North Korea, is scheduled to visit South Korea this weekend and stay for several days, an official from Seoul’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said on Thursday.

During his Seoul visit, Kim will meet with his South Korean counterpart Noh Kyu-duk, the special representative for Korean peace and security at MOFA, on June 21. This would be their first in-person meeting after Kim was appointed to the role in late May by U.S. President Joe Biden.
