S. Korean president's special envoys head to U.S. with N. Korea's offer for talks

정의용 서훈, 북한 "히든카드" 들고 미국행
Earlier this week, South Korea's presidential envoys traveled to North Korea and brought back half dozen agreements that could serve as a breakthrough in the rising tensions in and around the Korean peninsula.
The envoys were expected to fly to the U.S. to brief their allies on the outcome.
Our chief Blue House correspondent Moon Connyoung is live on the phone for us. Connyoung, what is the latest?

Two days after they returned from a historic trip to North Korea, South Korea's chief envoys took off for Washington earlier this Thursday afternoon... to meet officials there and discuss their meeting
with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un this week.

Upon return from Pyongyang, the South Korean envoys - Chief of National Security Office, Chung Eui-yong and Director of National Intelligence Service, Suh Hoon - said they would fly to the U.S. as
soon as possible to brief their allies on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's stance on possible future talks with the U.S. and its apparent willingness to suspend nuclear tests if regime security is guaranteed.

The South Koreans are expected to meet with U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and other departments heads... later possibly meet with either U.S. President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence. That's according to South Korean government officials speaking on the condition of anonymity.

We already know what North Korea has agreed to - inter-Korean summit, willingness to hold denuclearization talks with the U.S. among others. Will Chung and Suh have any other message from North Korea's Kim for the U.S. president?

Well, that remains to be seen BUT what we know for sure is that the presidential security chiefs do have additional messages from North Korea's Kim Jong-un for U.S. President Donald Trump - ones that would help Washington make their decision to take Pyongyang's offer for talks more easily.
So, definitely something MORE than its declaration that it is ready for denuclearization talks in exchange for security guarantee. But, of course, only time will tell.
The president's NSC chief will visit China and Russia after returning from the U.S. and NIS Director Suh Hoon will travel to Japan to discuss their outcomes.
