“Our government will continue to communicate and consult with the U.S. foreign policy officials in a stable manner.
“The two countries will pursue their diplomatic schedules as planned,’’ the president said.
The officials also agreed to closely monitor developments on the Korean Peninsula and in the international community as it focuses on improving inter-Korean relations and establishing a peace regime on the peninsula, according to the spokesman.
In order to stably manage the economy, the officials also studied the impact the U.S. election will have on the macro-economy, trade and industries, he added.
