Vice Minister Vegan has visited the Blue House today at 10:00 am and met with the new National Security Officer Seo Hoon.

The two seemed to have shared their opinions on solutions to the Korean Peninsula, such as North American dialogue and measures to advance inter-Korean relations.

It is known that he did not prevent President Moon Jae-in.

Earlier yesterday, vice minister Vice Minister Kang Kyung-hwa met with the core of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, including Minister Kang Kyung-hwa, Deputy Minister Se-young Cho, and Deputy Director Lee Do-hoon of the Korean Peninsula Peace and Bargaining Headquarters.

[Vegan/Deputy Secretary of State of the United States: The United States strongly supports inter-Korean cooperation, and I think it plays an important role in creating a more stable environment on the Korean Peninsula.] While

not coming to meet North Korea this time, he emphasized the need for North American dialogue.

Particularly, North Korea Choi Choi-hee and Bolton, the United States, were asked to choose a creative conversation partner other than this negative person.

[Vegan/Deputy Secretary of State for the United States: I am not under the direction of First Vice Chancellor Choi Choi or Ambassador John Bolton. When Chairman Kim Jong-un is ready to negotiate and appoints a competent negotiator, you will know that we are ready at that moment.]

Choehee Choi and Bolton were unusually accused of focusing on the negative and impossible, trapped in an old way of thinking, which translates to emphasizing that they are responsible American representatives.

Secretary Vegan is planning to leave for Japan this afternoon after a two-day, three-day visit to the Blue House.
