The United States and North Korea will meet again this month in an unidentified Asian country ahead of their leaders’ planned second summit in Vietnam in late February, South Korean officials said Sunday.

South Korea’s presidential office said, a follow-up US-North Korea meeting will be held probably next week. 
The US special representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun had visited Pyongyang last week to work out details of the Vietnam summit. 
The Presidential office said, US and North Korea used Biegun’s trip to Pyangyong as a chance to explain what concrete steps they want from each other.

According to a US State Department statement, Biegun and Kim Hyok Chol, North Korea’s special representative for US affairs, discussed advancing Mr Trump and Mr Kim’s Singapore summit commitments of complete denuclearisation and building a lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula.
