South Korean President Moon Jae-in will soon send a special envoy to North Korea in response to an invitation from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, his office said Thursday night.
The announcement came after Moon had a 30-minute phone conversation with U.S. President Donald Trump starting 10 p.m.
'In response to the visit by North Korea's special envoy Kim Yo-jong, President Moon conveyed to Trump his plans to dispatch a special envoy to the North soon,' Cheong Wa Dae said in a statement.
'The two leaders agreed to continue close consultations on the progress of South-North Korea dialogue that will go on.'
During the talks, Moon and Trump agreed to 'foster inter-Korean dialogue and continue efforts for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,' the presidential office said.
