SEOUL, Jan. 11 (Yonhap) -- Nuclear envoys of South Korea and Japan had a telephone conversation on Friday, during which they discussed recent developments on the Korean Peninsula, Seoul's Foreign Ministry said.
Lee Do-hoon, special representative for Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kenji Kanasugi, director-general of Japanese Foreign Ministry's Asian and Oceanian affairs bureau, also discussed cooperation on complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the ministry said.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited Beijing this week and held his fourth summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping ahead of a potential second summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump.
During a historic summit in Singapore last year between Kim and Trump, the two leaders agreed on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. But, little progress has been made since then on how to achieve the goal.
