In Washington, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement that Moon briefed Trump on his plan to send a special envoy to Pyongyang on Wednesday to meet Kim.

"The reason the delegation consists of the same officials from the first delegation is because the government considered the importance of continuity in dialogue with North Korea in achieving the objective of the North Korea trip", Kim Eui-kyeom, a spokesman for the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae, told a press briefing. The team includes National Intelligence Service head Suh Hoon and Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung.

"The delegation will set off for North Korea on the fifth via the direct route on the western side of the Peninsula, and they'll return to the South the same day".

Twitter not based on ‘political ideology,’ CEO tells lawmakers
To kick off his opening statement, Dorsey picked up his phone and said he would be tweeting out his prepared testimony. Another, more complex, issue may arise when Mr Dorsey testifies later in the afternoon in front of the House Energy.

Moon and Trump talked over phone for around 50 minutes from 9:00 p.m. local time (1200 GMT) about the scheduled travel by Moon's special emissaries to Pyongyang, according to the presidential Blue House.

Ju oversaw the launch of North Korea's Unha 2 long-range rocket in 2009, which he watched alongside then leader Kim Jong Il, Yonhap news agency said.

Any progress could depend on whether Moon's envoys were able to coax a stronger verbal commitment from North Korea on denuclearization to help put the nuclear talks between the United States and Pyongyang back on track.

Obama, Bush pay tribute to McCain
McCain died on August 25 at his ranch near Sedona, Arizona after a yearlong battle with an aggressive form brain cancer. He was a great man. "He's not a war hero", Trump said about McCain , who was a Vietnam veteran and a prisoner of war.

Moon and Kim held their second bilateral summit on May 26, followed by Kim's historic summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore on June 12.

North Korea wrote to Pompeo last month, warning that the peace process was faltering and telling him not to come to Pyongyang unless he was willing to bring further concessions, officials have said. Washington is unlikely to provide sanctions relief, diplomatic recognition or the reduction of USA forces in South Korea unless North Korea takes major steps on denuclearization.

Kim was paraphrased in the statement by his propaganda specialists as saying that it was "his will to completely remove the danger of armed conflict and horror of war from the Korean peninsula and turn it into the cradle of peace without nuclear weapons and free from nuclear threat".
