Our top story this morning...
Senior officials from North Korea and the United States have kicked off Working-level talks in Sweden.
They are hoping to make progress on a second summit between their leaders,... which the White House says will take place near the end of next month.
Kim Hyo-sun reports.
Working-level talks between delegations of North Korea and the United States are being held in Sweden,... in an effort to prepare for a second Kim-Trump summit.
North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui and U.S. Special Representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun kicked off their meeting on Saturday local time,... and haven't appeared in public since.
This is their first meeting since Biegun became WASHINGTON's special representative for North Korea in August last year.
South Korea's nuclear envoy Lee Do-hoon has also joined them for three-way talks,... which are likely to focus on setting the summit agenda.
The three officials are meeting at a highly-secured retreat located some 50 kilometers northwest of Stockholm.
This comes as Pyeongyang's top nuclear envoy Kim Yong-chol arrived in Beijing on Sunday,... after wrapping up his three day visit to Washington.
He met with President Trump to discuss the details of a second summit,... and also hand-delivered a personal letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
Last Friday,... when the North Korean official met U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,... Pompeo said it's time for Pyeongyang's denuclearization commitments to be executed and implemented.
He revealed his remarks during an interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group,... as he described the Trump administration's efforts to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.
Now, it's left to be seen whether the talks in Sweden can break the current deadlock over denuclearization talks and lead to a productive second summit.
