SEOUL, The special envoy of South Korean President Moon Jae-in to North Korea plans to discuss ways to completely denuclearize the Korean Peninsula when he visits the communist state this week, the envoy said Tuesday.
"The special delegation also plans to hold discussions on ways to completely denuclearize (the peninsula) and establish lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula," Chung Eui-yong told a press briefing, one day before he was set to embark on a one-day trip to Pyongyang.
Chung, head of the presidential National Security Office, will be leading a five-member delegation to the communist state that will include National Intelligence Service Director Suh Hoon and Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung.
The visit is aimed at arranging a bilateral summit between Moon and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as the countries have already agreed to hold a third Moon-Kim summit in Pyongyang this month.
"First, the delegation will seek to set a specific date for the South-North summit that the countries have already agreed to hold in Pyongyang in September," the top presidential security adviser said.
"Second, it will discuss ways to develop South-North Korean relations by implementing the Panmunjom declaration," he added, referring to the inter-Korean agreement reached by Moon and Kim at their first-ever bilateral summit in the border village of Panmunjom on April 27.
The leaders of the two Koreas met again in Panmunjom on May 26.
