  Moon and Trump talked over phone for about 50 minutes from 9:00 p.m. local time (1200 GMT) about the scheduled travel by Moon's special emissaries to Pyongyang, according to the presidential Blue House.

  The five-member special delegation, led by Chung Eui-yong, top national security adviser of the Blue House, planned to visit Pyongyang Wednesday morning and return home on the same day.

  Moon and Trump exchanged opinions about situations on the Korean Peninsula, including the denuclearization talks between Pyongyang and Washington after the DPRK-U.S. summit on June 12, and the upcoming third summit between Moon and DPRK top leader Kim Jong Un.

  Moon and Trump agreed to maintain close consultations and cooperation in every level, the Blue House said.
