S. Korea, Vietnam Look To Ease COVID-19 Travel Curbs

Foreign ministers discuss possible move to facilitate business travelers during meeting in Hanoi.

South Korea and Vietnam may soon ease COVID-19 restrictions for business travelers, local media reported on Friday.
Discussions on the matter were held between Vietnam's Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh and her South Korean counterpart Kang Kyung-wha, who arrived in Hanoi on Thursday on a two-day official visit, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.
The two ministers also spoke on a raft of bilateral and regional issues.
"With support from Vietnam, this year's ASEAN [Association for Southeast Asian Nations] chair country, we would like to create momentum to develop not only relations between the two countries, but also South Korea's ties with ASEAN," the agency "ed Kang as saying in her opening remarks.
Kang, who is the first top foreign top diplomat to visit Vietnam since the coronavirus outbreak, also met Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc.
Inter-Korean dialogue
Kang was also expected to use the visit to ask for Vietnam's support for Seoul's efforts to resume stalled dialogue with Pyongyang, according to the agency.
In a meeting in Seoul on Friday, South Korean President Moon Jae-in requested a group of Buddhist community leaders to help open the way for inter-Korean exchanges and advance "the path of peace" on the peninsula.
"If (we) don't give up hope for meetings and dialogue, we will surely move on to the path of peace and unification," Moon said.
Earlier, the country's Unification Ministry also urged Pyongyang to implement agreements reached at a 2018 summit.
The appeal came just a day before the second anniversary of the summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang on Sept. 19, 2018, Yonhap reported.
Tensions between the two countries have mounted over propaganda leaflets sent into North Korea from the South.
In June, Pyongyang blew up the inter-Korean liaison office in its Kaesong border district, just days after Kim Yo-jong, the sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, warned of such a move. -
