South Korean FM Open to Meeting North Korean Counterpart

South Korean FM Open to Meeting North Korean Counterpart
South Korea's new foreign minister said Saturday she was open to rare discussions with her North Korean counterpart on the sidelines of a security summit in the Philippines.


"If there is an opportunity that naturally occurs, we should talk," Kang Kyung-Wha told reporters as she landed in Manila on Saturday, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

North Korea's top diplomat, Ri Hong-Yo, is also attending the regional summit, which is hosted by the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

The potential meetings come as the North faces intense international pressure to curtail its nuclear weapons programme, AFP reported.

The United Nations Security Council will vote this weekend on a US-drafted resolution to toughen sanctions against North Korea following its second intercontinental ballistic missile test on July 28.
