Visit could be the first step towards eventual trip to Pyongyang by president of South Korea, Moon Jae-in

South Korea plans to send a special envoy to North Korea as President Moon Jae-in works to encourage direct talks between Washington and Pyongyang on ending the nuclear programme of Kim Jong-un’s regime.

Moon told Donald Trump of his plans during a 30-minute phone call late on Thursday, the first in a month, according to a statement by the South’s presidential office. The move comes after the North sent senior officials including Kim’s younger sister to the South during the Winter Olympics.
