ROK delegation meets with Kim Jong Un in DPRK

All papers reported from Seoul on a day trip to North Korea by a five-member South Korean diplomatic delegation on Wednesday, saying that the visitors paid a courtesy call on Chairman Kim Jong Un and delivered a letter to him from President Moon perhaps asking him to swiftly present a denuclearization roadmap as called for by the United States. According to Yomiuri, the USG is demanding that the Kim regime take concrete steps toward shipping some of its nuclear warheads out of the country ahead of the midterm elections in November. The paper speculated that the ROK envoys probably told the DPRK side that a declaration on ending the Korean War could be issued this year if it takes concrete measures toward denuclearization.  Asahi said some of the delegation members will visit Washington soon to brief officials there on their meetings with the DPRK side.
