SEOUL, Aug. 24 (Yonhap) -- South Korean Vice Foreign Minister Chun Yung-woo headed to the United States Tuesday for talks on sanctions against Iran, an official said, as Seoul weighs possible financial measures to meet Washington's demand for more sanctions against Tehran.
Chun will visit the U.S. from Tuesday through Friday as head of an inter-agency team of officials from the foreign ministry, the finance ministry and the financial services commission, the official said on customary condition of anonymity.
The delegation is expected to meet with Robert Einhorn, a State Department official overseeing sanctions on North Korea and Iran, and other senior officials for talks.
South Korea has been in a quandary after the U.S. formally asked it early this month to adopt independent sanctions on Iran in addition to U.N.-authorized measures, while Iran has warned that new sanctions would have a serious impact on Seoul's trade relations with the Middle Eastern nation.>>>
