SEOUL, Sept. 7 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday ordered his top security officials to visit China and Japan to explain the outcome of their visit to North Korea this week, the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said.

Chung Eui-yong, Moon's top security adviser, will travel to China this week to personally explain the outcome of his trip to Pyongyang on Wednesday.

"Chung is scheduled to meet with Yang Jiechi (in Beijing) on Saturday," Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told a press briefing. Yang is a ranking member of China's communist party who is in charge of foreign affairs.

Suh Hoon, director of the National Intelligence Service, will visit Japan for a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Monday, the Cheong Wa Dae spokesman added.

Suh too visited Pyongyang as part of a five-member delegation that also included Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung.
