Stephen Biegun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea, arrived in South Korea Sunday for working-level talks on a proposed second summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, Yonhap News reported.
Biegun plans to meet his North Korean counterpart Kim Hyok Chol to discuss the agenda and other issues before the summit scheduled for this month, Yonhap said, citing a diplomatic source it didn’t identify. President Donald Trump has said he will announce the time and location of the second summit with Kim early next week.
Separately, Biegun will visit the South Korean presidential Blue House Monday to meet with Chung Eui-yong, South Korea’s national security adviser, YTN reported, citing an unidentified Blue House official.
Biegun will meet North Korean officials Feb. 5 and the venue could be its capital of Pyongyang or the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjom, according to YTN. The talks may last more than a day.
