SEOUL, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will meet with a U.S. congressional delegation in Seoul next week for discussions on regional peace and pending alliance issues, her ministry said Thursday.
Kang is scheduled to greet the group of American lawmakers, including Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA), who co-chairs the Congressional Study Group on Korea (CSGK), and Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA), at her office on Monday.
"The two sides plan to exchange opinions on pending issues of South Korea-U.S. relations, which include ways for coordination to establish the Korean Peninsula peace regime," the ministry's spokesman, Kim In-chul, said at a press briefing.
Kang is currently accompanying President Moon Jae-in on his trip to Washington, where he will hold his seventh summit with President Donald Trump.
Moon is expected to try to use the summit with Trump to get the stalled denuclearization talks moving again. Skepticism has grown about dialogue with Pyongyang since February's summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ended without an agreement.
