Special envoys make trips to China, Japan, and Russia to give results of their Pyongyang visit Updated: 2018-03-12 13:04:31 KST

Less than 24 hours since the special envoys came back from their trip to Washington and their meeting with President Trump, they were heading off again, this time separately.
President Moon's top security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, arrived in Beijing Monday morning, to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping and other officials.
After two days in China, Chung will fly to Moscow, but because there's a presidential election in Russia on Sunday it hasn't been confirmed whether he'll be able to meet with President Vladimir Putin.
Meanwhile, the head of South Korea's intelligence agency, Suh Hoon, arrived in Tokyo Monday afternoon and will meet with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Tuesday.
The special envoys will be explaining to each leader the outcomes of their historic visit to Pyongyang, as they did to President Trump.
That'll include the details of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's promise to return to the negotiation table, his willingness to discuss denuclearization in exchange for security guarantees, his commitment to stop nuclear and missile testing, and his acceptance of plans by South Korea and the U.S. to continue their joint military exercises.
The envoys will also discuss the much anticipated inter-Korean summit that will take place in April.
Chung and Suh will also explain the results of their visit to Washington, where President Trump agreed to meet with Kim Jong-un by May if North Korea makes good on its recent commitments.
The visits by Chung and Suh to China, Russia and Japan is seen as an effort by the Moon administration to guarantee the smooth implementation of the inter-Korean agreement and to eventually find a solution to the North Korean nuclear issue, since those countries' active cooperation and support will be key.
