South Korea's special envoy is scheduled to travel to Pyongyang Wednesday with an ambitious agenda to work out the deadlocked road to denuclearizing North Korea.
"It is a very important time for a peace settlement on the Korean Peninsula," Chung Eui-yong, head of the presidential National Security Office and special envoy to North Korea, said at a press briefing Tuesday.
The visit is aimed at setting a date for the third summit between the South's President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. They had agreed to meet in Pyongyang before the end of September.
The envoys do not know whether they would meet Kim but Chung confirmed they are carrying a personal letter to Kim from Moon.
