No public contact has been established between the Biden administration and North Korea since the president took office.

Mr. Sung Kim held talks with South Korea’s top nuclear envoy, Noh Kyu-duk, as well as a trilateral session that included his Japanese counterpart, Takehiro Funakoshi in South Korea.

Mr. Sung Kim emphasized that President Joe Biden's administration will continue to enforce UN Security Council resolutions that have imposed sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear weapons program.

This is the first face-to-face meeting between the special envoys of the United States, South Korea and Japan on the North Korean nuclear issue since Sung Kim took over in May.
