  • South Korea sends envoys to North Korea

The special delegation will travel via a western direct route to the DPRK on a special plane Monday afternoon for a two-day visit to Pyongyang.

"It seems that the delegation's mission will be two-fold".

However, the United States has ruled out any possibility of talks before the North takes steps towards denuclearisation, and imposed what Trump hailed as the "toughest ever" sanctions on Kim's regime late last month. As the South Korean counterpart to Gen. H.R. McMaster, Mr. Trump's national security adviser, Mr. Chung has worked to coordinate American and South Korean approaches toward North Korea.

The delegation's trip comes after the Koreas reached unprecedented levels of cooperation during the Winter Olympics in the South last month.

Pyongyang's statement also said it "depends entirely on the attitude of the US" whether "a situation that no one desires is developed in the vicious cycle of confrontation" or "whether peace desired by our nation and the rest of the world settles on the Korean peninsula".

They'll most likely be the first South Korean envoys to meet Kim, and they'll also be the first South Korean diplomats to visit the North since 2008, when South Korea elected a president who was harsher on the Kim regime's weapons program.

A majority of North Koreans are against their country's nuclear weapon programme, saying that it is not a source of national pride and prosperity, according to a survey done by the US-based think tank.

Months after the dispatch, Roh and Kim Jong Il, then DPRK leader and father of the current leader, met in Pyongyang in October 2007.

The delegation will hold discussions on the "right" conditions created for the dialogue between Pyongyang and Washington D.C., that is aimed at achieving the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and establishing peaceful relations between the two Koreas.

"Now we're talking. They, by the way, called up a couple of days ago, they said 'we would like to talk, '" Trump said.

In order to defend itself from such threats, Han said the North "had access to nuclear weapons" and it won't hesitate to respond to any confrontations from Washington.

Pyongyang's weapons tests, which demonstrated rapid progress in the country's missile technology, alarmed the U.S. and prompted calls by some in Washington to launch pre-emptive attacks on the North.

Apparently, the North Korean regime was able to avoid worldwide sanctions by mining or stealing bitcoin, according to some experts.
