And to tell us more about the joint press conference that we just heard now on the recent North Korea-U.S. summit our Park Hee-jun is on the line for us.
Hee-jun, what can you tell us?

Ji-yoon, the joint press conference came right after a trilateral session at the Foreign Ministry, between the top diplomats of South Korea, the U.S. and Japan, where U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo briefed South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono on the details of the recent summit in Singapore.
And before that, there was a bilateral session between Kang and Pompeo.

((Now, at the press conference,
The three countries agreed to continue their joint efforts in dealing with North Korea, to achieve denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula.

Following the conference, Kang and her Japanese counterpart Kono will hold talks over a working lunch-- they're probably heading there now.
As for Pompeo, he's scheduled to fly over to Beijing in the afternoon to brief senior Chinese officials, and possibly President Xi Jinping, on the North Korea-U.S. Summit.
He's also expected to ask for Beijing's support for the follow-up measures to implement the joint statement, before he heads back home in the late evening.
I'll be keeping a close eye on that trip to Beijing as well.
But for now, I'll pass things back to you.
