[Breaking] N. Korean leader sends letter to Moon

-North Korea talks. The U.S. State Department has not commented on the report of Kim's message.

The North Korean leader reached out to the South on Sunday night, . expressing his determination to make big strides toward denuclearization in 2019. He expressed willingness to pay a visit to the capital city while monitoring the situation, the spokesman added.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sent a letter to Seoul voicing his desire to hold "frequent" meetings with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in 2019, Moon's office said on Sunday.

Kim promised to make a return visit to Seoul within 2018 in a joint statement with President Moon Jae-in unless there were special circumstances. With worldwide sanctions squeezing the country's trade flow and cash supply, any clues about the North Korean economy or Kim's growth strategies will be closely examined.

On Feb. 10, Kim's sister Yo-jong, the first vice-director of the North's Workers' Party Central Committee, delivered a letter to Moon at Cheong Wa Dae when she visited the South to participate in the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

"Chairman Kim also expressed his intentions to meet President Moon frequently again in 2019 to advance discussions on the Korean Peninsula's peace and prosperity and discuss issues on the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", the spokesman said.

"There is a dialogue channel between North Korea and the United States through which they exchange active communication, but I can not know whether it took the form of letter or something else", Moon's spokesman told a news briefing yesterday.

Another key issue was whether Kim might signal his intent to visit the South soon as he pledged during the Pyongyang summit in September, and send another message on inter-Korean ties.

Although both countries technically remain at war, relations improved markedly in 2018 thanks to a number of conciliatory gestures from Mr Kim.
