South Korean Envoy Visits North Korea to Help Revive Nuclear Talks

President Moon Jae-in of South Korea sent a special envoy to North Korea on Wednesday, hoping to help break the deadlock in the talks between the North and the United States over dismantling the North’s nuclear weapons program.

Chung Eui-yong, the national security adviser to Mr. Moon, met with Kim Jong-un, the North’s leader, during his brief trip to Pyongyang, the capital, according to Mr. Moon’s office. The presidential office said the results of Mr. Chung’s visit would be announced Thursday.

Mr. Chung’s entourage included Suh Hoon, the director of South Korea’s National Intelligence Service. Besides discussing obstacles to progress with the United States, they had also hoped to set a date and agenda for Mr. Moon’s meeting with Mr. Kim later this month in Pyongyang, which is expected to focus on sustaining the recent thaw in inter-Korean ties. Mr. Chung delivered a letter from Mr. Moon to Mr. Kim.
