By way of background, a South Korean delegation is in Washington to discuss how to proceed on North Korea, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauer said Thursday. The visit comes days after South Korean President Moon Jae In sent a five-person delegation to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Following those meetings, Seoul said Kim was prepared to meet with the United States to discuss giving up his atomic weapons programme in return for security guarantees.
A summit between the North Korean dictator and the South Korean president is set for April.
