SEOUL, May 30 (UPI) -- Hwang Joon-kook, South Korea's nuclear envoy, will soon travel to Washington for senior-level meetings at the U.S. Department of State, the foreign ministry announced Friday.

Hwang will meet with Special Representative for North Korea Policy Glyn Davies and other senior U.S. officials during his three-day visit, which begins Sunday.

According to the ministry, Hwang and his U.S. counterpart are expected to share their views on the state of affairs on the Korean Peninsula and to coordinate a response to the North Korean nuclear issue.

In April, Hwang traveled to Washington for a U.S.-Japan-South Korea trilateral summit on North Korea. That meeting, which aimed to strengthen coordination on an array of issues concerning North Korea -- including the shared objective of North Korean denuclearization -- was described as "productive, substantive."
