SEOUL, Jan. 3 (Yonhap) -- The top diplomats of South Korea and the United States reaffirmed Wednesday that they will continue their joint diplomatic efforts to peacefully resolve the North Korea nuclear problem through "ironclad" coordination, the foreign ministry here said.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and her U.S. counterpart Rex Tillerson held a phone conversation earlier in the day to discuss recent developments related to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's New Year speech, according to the ministry. In the speech, Kim proposed inter-Korean talks on Pyongyang's possible participation in the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games to be held next month.
