Mr. Wang’s visit comes amid delayed talks aimed at eliminating North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs in exchange for sanctions relief from the US, which broke down in 2019.
In July, the restoration of inter-Korean hotlines raised expectations for a resumption of denuclearization negotiations. On the other hand, North Korea ceased responding to the hotlines in August, when South Korea and the United States began their annual military drills, which Pyongyang has warned may spark a security crisis. According to South Korea’s Yonhap news agency, the senior nuclear negotiators of South Korea, the United States, and Japan are expected to meet in Tokyo a day before Mr. Wang’s arrival. The meeting has yet to be finalized, according to a spokeswoman for Seoul’s foreign ministry.
Mr. Sung Kim, the US special envoy for North Korea, stated in Seoul late last month that Washington has no hostile intentions toward Pyongyang and that he is willing to continue talks “anywhere, at any time.” South Korea and China may consider Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Seoul, which was scheduled for early 2020 but was postponed due to the epidemic.
