US Deputy Secretary of State and Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegan said on the 28th (local time) "We have discussed constructive ways to continue promoting diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula."
He also discussed creative ideas with Lee Do-hoon, head of the Korean Peninsula Peace Bargaining Headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and emphasized that the ROK and the United States cannot do this and that North Korea's involvement is necessary.
It is noteworthy whether it means the end of the war, which President Moon Jae-in recently mentioned at the UN General Assembly.
Deputy Secretary Vegan said, "We had a wonderful meeting and discussed various issues related to the Korean Peninsula and US-ROK relations," after meeting with the reporters after consulting with Director Lee at the Washington DC State Department.
"We also discussed the tragic killing of (Korea) public officials in the West Sea as well," he said. "It was a deeply shocking event for the Korean people and clearly the United States."
"But we also discussed constructive ways to continue promoting diplomacy on the Korean Peninsula," said Veegan.
"The United States and Korea continue to be committed to diplomacy," he added. "To achieve lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula, achieve denuclearization, bring a bright future for all Koreans, and bring about normalization of US-North Korea relations."
"We are very grateful for the creative ideas we discussed today. But we can't do it alone. The US and South Korea can't do it ourselves. We need North Korean involvement and discuss with them when they're ready." It keeps open to you."
It draws attention to whether the constructive measures and creative ideas mentioned by Secretary Vegan mean the end of the war.
In a speech at the UN General Assembly on the 23rd Korean time, President Moon appealed for support from the international community for the declaration of an end to the war.
Vice-Gan often talks with Lee in Washington, DC, but it is unusual to stand in front of the reporters together after consultations.
It is interpreted to show a willingness to resume dialogue with North Korea by preventing the worsening of the situation following the North Korean killing of South Korean officials.
