SEOUL (Xinhua): Suh Hoon, top national security adviser for South Korean President Moon Jae-in, virtually consulted with his US and Japanese counterparts, Robert O'Brien and Shigeru Kitamura, on various security issues, the presidential Blue House said Friday (Nov 6).
During the virtual consultation, the top security officials discussed various issues, including the denuclearisation of and the peace settlement in the Korean Peninsula, agreeing to continue relevant cooperation among the three sides, the Blue House said.
They shared the assessment of recent security situations on the peninsula and discussed ways to "engage with" the North Korea for dialogue resumption.
Denuclearization talks between the DPRK and the United States have been stalled since the second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump ended without agreement at the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi in February 2019.
The three security officials agreed that the trilateral security cooperation should continue regardless of the situation relevant to the US presidential election "with no vacuum."
During the virtual talks, Suh emphasised the need for an early resumption of dialogue between North Korea and the United States, the Blue House noted.
