N. Korean leader calls for more talks with South in new year

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea says North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sent a letter to South Korean President Moon Jae-in calling for more talks between the leaders in the new year.

Moon's office said Sunday Kim also expressed regret that he couldn't make a planned visit to South Korea's capital that the South had hoped would happen by the end of 2018. Moon's office says it won't fully reveal the details of Kim's letter.

Kim and Moon met three times this year as Pyongyang actively initiated diplomacy following a provocative run in nuclear and missile tests.

Kim also held a historic summit with President Donald Trump in June, but post-summit nuclear talks quickly settled into a stalemate as the North demanded the removal of U.S.-led sanctions before its denuclearization.
