Seoul, US to hold 'serious, in-depth' N. Korea talks

South Korea and the United States will continue to have "serious and in-depth" talks aimed at determining the best approach to the issue of inter-Korean relations, Seoul's foreign ministry stated on Wednesday.

The ministry issued a statement after US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan hinted that Washington and Seoul share a common goal regarding the peninsula, but might have different stances on the best way to get North Korea to the negotiating table.

Both the US and South Korea are "united" in dedication to completely denuclearize the peninsula and secure lasting peace, the statement explained, as translated by Yonhap.
