PYONGYANG : Korea Talks: Round 2

October 16, 1990

Amid signs of a possible warming in Communist North Korea's attitude toward Seoul, South Korean Prime Minister Kang Young Hoon travels to the northern capital today to continue high-level contacts begun last month.

Other recent signs of change on the Korean Peninsula--divided since World War II--include establishment of diplomatic relations between the Soviet Union and South Korea, and Pyongyang's seemingly dramatic change of attitude toward Japan, with which it now wants to negotiate an exchange of envoys.

Kang, heading an 89-member entourage, is scheduled to see North Korean President Kim Il Sung on Thursday and reportedly hopes to convince him to meet his South Korean counterpart, Roh Tae Woo, in a first-ever Korean summit.
