South Korea and the U.S. held talks Thursday on environmental issues, including energy security and ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The foreign ministry said Friday that its director-general for climate change met with U.S. State Department officials in Washington at the eighth Energy Security Dialogue.
The South Korean side explained its ongoing efforts toward an energy transition and to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, and stressed the importance of bilateral cooperation.
The U.S. also said they should work together to achieve an energy transition globally.
These were the first bilateral talks on energy security since the South Korea-U.S. summit in May.
