SEOUL, Sept. 4 (Yonhap) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday reaffirmed their joint efforts to establish peace and denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

The pledge for joint efforts came in a telephone conversation.

"The two leaders exchanged their honest views on the development of South-North Korean relations and conditions surrounding the Korean Peninsula, including the denuclearization negotiations between North Korea and the United States following the North Korea-U.S. summit on June 12 and the upcoming third South-North Korea summit, and agreed that South Korea and the U.S. will continue their close consultations and cooperation at various levels," Moon's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said of the telephone conversation.

The call was made on the eve of a trip to Pyongyang by Moon's special envoy, Chung Eui-yong, head of the presidential National Security Office.
