Top nuclear envoys of South Korea and the U.S. again sat down together a week after their previous meeting in Seoul.

South Korean chief nuclear envoy Noh Kyu-duk explained that South Korea and the U.S. have been discussing possible joint projects to promote humanitarian cooperation with the North and they will continue to work together closely on the issue. The special representative for the Korean Peninsula peace and security affairs also said he and Kim shared assessments on the North Korean nuclear issue and situations on the peninsula.

[Soundbite] Noh Kyu-duk(Special Rep. for Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Affairs) : "In close cooperation with the U.S., the South Korean government has been keeping a close eye on North Korea’s WMD-related activities."

It seems Noh made the remarks in reference to a recent IAEA report that the North appears to have restarted a plutonium-producing reactor at its Yongbyon nuclear complex. Regarding the speculation, the White House said the U.S. is well aware of the IAEA report and is seeking dialogue with Pyongyang.

The Biden administration’s official stance is that the latest allegation underscores the urgent need to resolve the North Korean nuclear issue through diplomacy and dialogue. Therefore, it is likely that following Noh and Kim’s consultation, Seoul and Washington may have delivered various proposals to Pyongyang, in addition to the offer of humanitarian cooperation, to bring the North back to the negotiating table.
