President Moon Jae-in has chosen the head of the National Security Office, Chung Eui-yong, and the chief of the National Intelligence Service, Suh Hoon, as his special envoys.
Chung will lead the 10-member delegation and spend 2 days in Pyongyang.
The presidential office said the delegates will travel to the North to reciprocate for last month’s visit by the North Korean leader’s younger sister, Kim Yo Jong.
Seoul will send a five-member delegation, led by chief of the presidential National Security Office Chung Eui-yong, to the North on Monday, according to the presidential office cited by Yonhap. During the two-day trip to Pyongyang, the envoys are expected to hold high-level talks with North Korean officials. The goal of the negotiations is to discuss “the ways to reach peace on the Korean Peninsula and develop the bilateral relationship” as well as set up “conditions for North Korea-US dialogue aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
