Foreign Ministry spokesman Cho June-hyuk told a regular press briefing that Kim Hong-Kyun, chief South Korean envoy for the six-way dialogue to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, will visit China on Friday to meet with Wu Dawei, China's special representative on Korean Peninsular affairs.
Kim and Wu will share an assessment on the Korean Peninsula situations and discuss strategic cooperation between the ROK and China in implementing the new UN Security Council resolution on the DPRK.
It will be the first meeting between them as Kim was nominated in late February as special representative for Korean Peninsula affairs who represent the ROK at the six-party talks.
The six-party talks, which involve the ROK, the DPRK, China, the United States, Russia and Japan, have been halted since late 2008.
