- Story Text: Russia and South Korea's special envoys held a meeting on Tuesday (August 24) in Seoul over issues on North Korea amid a standoff over U.S.-South Korean military exercises that the North has warned could trigger a security crisis.
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov arrived in Seoul on Saturday (August 21) for six-day visit to meet South Korean officials and U.S. special envoy for North Korea, Sung Kim.
South Korea's Foreign Ministry said that its Special Representative for Korean Peninsula Peace and Security Affairs, Noh Kyu-duk, and Morgulov are expected to discuss bilateral cooperation on complete denuclearisation of Korean Peninsula and ways to build permanent peace.
The nine-day joint military exercise between South Korea and the United States began on August 16, with silence so far from North Korean state media despite fears that the country could conduct a missile test or take other actions to underscore its disapproval.
