South Korean special envoy flies to North Korea

"The reason the delegation consists of the same officials from the first delegation is because the government considered the importance of continuity in dialogue with North Korea in achieving the objective of the North Korea trip", Kim Eui-kyeom, a spokesman for the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae, told a press briefing. They will return home on the same day, the spokesman added.

Moon and Trump talked over phone for around 50 minutes from 9:00 p.m. local time (1200 GMT) about the scheduled travel by Moon's special emissaries to Pyongyang, according to the presidential Blue House.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his commitment to a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula amid a growing standoff with the United States, his state-controlled media reported Thursday after a South Korean delegation met him to set up an inter-Korean summit.

An authoritarian nation obsessed with big milestones, North Korea will use the celebration for the 70th anniversary of its national founding to glorify Kim Jong Un as a leader who's standing up for a powerful nation surrounded by enemies.

The five-member delegation led by Moon's national security adviser arrived in Pyongyang on Wednesday to arrange a third summit between Moon and Kim planned for later this month and help rescue faltering nuclear diplomacy between Washington and Pyongyang.

The planned inter-Korean summit follows Trump's cancellation of a visit to Pyongyang by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month after Pompeo received a belligerent letter from a senior North Korean official.

North Korea is said to have demanded a timely quid pro quo for its denuclearization efforts while the US has repeatedly vowed to maintain maximum sanctions on the impoverished North until it completely denuclearizes.

Moon said now is a significant period for settling peace on the peninsula, which would go together with complete denuclearization, stressing that improved inter-Korean relations and eased tensions on the peninsula will contribute to the peninsula's complete denuclearization and the settlement of a lasting peace regime.

A veteran North Korean official who was sanctioned for his suspected role in development of the country's nuclear and missile technology has died, the North announced on Tuesday (Sept 4).
