US diplomat headed to Moscow for North Korea meeting

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s top envoy for North Korea will travel to Moscow for meetings this week about the denuclearization process, officials with both sides confirmed Monday.

"We will hold a full round of consultations on the situation on the Korean Peninsula,” Russian deputy foreign minister Igor Morgulov said Monday, according to state-run TASS.

Stephen Biegun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea, will stop in Moscow Tuesday before heading west to Paris and Brussels. His trip comes on the heels of a separate summit Morgulov hosted with North Korean and Chinese diplomats, which saw the two Eastern powers back the pariah state’s call for sanctions relief in the midst of negotiations over North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.
