SEOUL, Aug. 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's presidential office rejected as groundless a local news report Thursday that emissaries of President Park Geun-hye and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met secretly in China last week to discuss a suspended joint industrial complex.

The Naeil Shinmun newspaper reported that the talks took place Aug. 1-2 in Beijing between a key confidant of Park and an official of the North's powerful National Defense Commission headed by Kim in his capacity as its first chairman.
