South Korean envoys headed to Pyongyang on Wednesday to revive nuclear talks between the U.S. and North Korea, as President Donald Trump signals growing frustration with the negotiations two months after he met Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

A five-member delegation sent by South Korean President Moon Jae-in may meet with Kim during the day of talks in the North Korean capital. The same team -- including National Security Office head Chung Eui-yong and National Intelligence Service chief Suh Hoon -- helped broker the historic first meeting between Trump and Kim in June.
