Moon's Special Envoys to Visit Pyongyang Monday

Some experts say the North's outreach during the Olympics was an attempt to use improved ties with South Korea as a way to break out of diplomatic isolation and weaken USA -led worldwide sanctions and pressure on the country.

South Korea is dispatching a delegation led by senior security officials for a two-day visit to North Korea, the presidential Blue House announced, as US President Donald Trump hinted that he is ready to talk to Pyongyang.

Moon was even personally invited to Pyongyang by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's sister.

National Security Chief Chung Eui-yong will lead the 10-member delegation, spokesman Yoon Young-chan said.

Why do the USA and the global community so vehemently oppose North Korea's wish to have nuclear weapons?

The goal of the negotiations is to discuss "the ways to reach peace on the Korean Peninsula and develop the bilateral relationship" as well as set up "conditions for North Korea-US dialogue aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

We will remind, recently trump said that insists on the willingness of the U.S. to start direct talks with North Korea.

North Korea greatly accelerated its testing of ballistic missiles previous year and now claims it can deliver a nuclear weapon anywhere in the United States.

The Trump administration has been kicking the idea of talks with North Korea around for quite some time.

Suh, 63, made behind-the-scenes contact with the North to prepare for the landmark summits in June 2000 and October 2007.

"Now we are talking and they. called up a couple of days ago".

It is still unclear whether the South Korean envoys will have an opportunity to directly meet the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The North Korea visit marks Seoul's latest effort to broker a meeting between Washington and Pyongyang, as both sides basically agree to dialogue but the Trump White House refuses to enter any talks without the regime's promise to denuclearize.

They've insisted that this time they would not start a dialogue until the North first took steps that would convince them of its willingness to negotiate away its nuclear weapons.
