Kim Hyok-chol, Pyongyang's special representative for the United States, met his US counterpart Stephen Biegun, Washington's envoy for North Korea, for the third straight day on Saturday in Hanoi.

The second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump is slated for Feb. 27-28 in the Vietnamese capital.

Envoys from Washington and Pyongyang held a meeting that lasted for around an hour at Hotel du Parc in downtown Hanoi, where Biegun is staying.

Kim Song-hye, director of the United Front Department's tactical office, and Choe Kang-il, acting director-general for the foreign ministry's North American affairs, accompanied Kim Hyok-chol.

The envoys also held lengthy meetings Thursday and Friday at Hotel du Parc as well. (Yonhap)
