SEOUL, June 7 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's foreign ministry will send 10 officials, including its top nuclear envoy, to Singapore for next week's summit between the United States and North Korea, its spokesman said Thursday.

Lee Do-hoon, the nuclear envoy, along with the ministry's public relations staff, will depart for the Southeast Asian country on Sunday ahead of the talks between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un slated for Tuesday.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha is not currently planning to visit Singapore, Noh Kyu-duk, the ministry spokesman, told reporters.

Separate from the foreign ministry staff, the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae plans to dispatch Nam Gwan-pyo, a deputy director of its National Security Office, and other personnel. The unification ministry and other related ministries are also expected to send officials.
