Seoul's top nuclear envoy Noh Kyu-duk has spoken over the phone with his U.S. counterpart Sung Kim for the first time since Kim was appointed as special envoy for North Korea.
Seoul's foreign ministry said they spoke on Saturday, the day after the Moon-Biden summit.
The two diplomats agreed to speed up talks on ways to follow up on the summit agreements and to continue coordinating closely on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Noh met Kim in person last week at the leaders' press conference in Washington where Kim was appointed to his new post.
