The top security officials of South Korea and the United States reaffirmed on Tuesday their commitment to engaging with North Korea.
Suh Hoon, the director of Cheong Wa Dae's National Security Office, and his American counterpart, Jake Sullivan, also vowed to work together in bringing the North back to the dialogue table during their meeting in Washington.
Sullivan reiterated that the U.S. holds no hostile policy toward Pyongyang as claimed by the regime.
Suh said he explained Seoul's efforts to formally end the Korean War and to consult closely with U.S. officials on the issue.
President Moon Jae-in made the proposal at the United Nations General Assembly last month, saying such a move may help kickstart the North's denuclearization process.
