Report: A delegation led by President Moon Jae-in’s special envoy to the U.S. Hong Seok-hyun arrived in Washington on Wednesday.
 
On his first official trip to the U.S., Hong visited the White House, where he met with U.S. President Donald Trump and handed him a letter from President Moon.
 
The brief meeting between Hong and Trump was also attended by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, and Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.
 
During the meeting, Trump expressed his anticipation for the upcoming summit meeting with Moon next month and said he expects to produce outcomes on the North Korean nuclear issue through close cooperation with Moon.
 
Trump also said he will not pursue talks with the North for talks’ sake, but added he is willing to make peace through engagement with the North if conditions are right.  
 
McMaster said he understands there is a domestic procedural problem in South Korea with the decision to deploy a THAAD antimissile battery, hinting that he is aware of the controversy regarding whether or not the decision needs parliamentary ratification in South Korea.
 
Hong, who is set to meet with other U.S. officials during the rest of his four-day, said Washington’s suspicions about the Moon administration’s North Korea policy are only misperceptions and he will try to resolve them through meetings with a variety of leaders in the U.S.
 
Among his upcoming discussion partners in the U.S. are State Secretary Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary James Mattis and the leaders on Capitol Hill.
