South Korean Foreign Minister May Meet With Pompeo in Warsaw This Week - Reports

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha may hold a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to discuss North Korea later this week on the sidelines of a US-sponsored ministerial event in Warsaw, local media reported on Monday, citing a diplomatic source

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 11th February, 2019) South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha may hold a meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to discuss North Korea later this week on the sidelines of a US-sponsored ministerial event in Warsaw, local media reported on Monday, citing a diplomatic source.

On Wednesday and Thursday, Warsaw will host an international ministerial session to "Promote a Future of Peace and Security in the middle East," and both Pompeo and Kang are expected to attend it.

According to Yonhap news Agency, these US-South Korean talks are expected to take place in advance of the upcoming second high-level summit between Pyongyang and Washington. However, neither Seoul, nor Washington has so far provided any official information on a possible meeting in Poland.

US President Donald Trump announced in his State of the Union address last week that he would meet again with North Korea's leader Kin Jong Un in Vietnam on February 27-28.

US Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun and his North Korean counterpart Kim Hyok Chol held talks in Pyongyang on February 6-8 to prepare the grounds for the second Trump-Kim summit.

The situation on the Korean Peninsula has improved over the past year after Seoul and Pyongyang concluded important agreements calling for peace and stability in the region, and Kim and Trump held a historic summit in Singapore in June 2018. During the summit, the sides reached an agreement stipulating that North Korea would make efforts to promote the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in exchange for the United States and South Korea freezing their military exercise and potentially lifting US sanctions.
