The trip comes amid coronavirus pandemic and stalled denuclearization talks between Seoul and Pyongyang.

Yang will visit Busan from August 21 to 22 and meet Suh Hoon, director of ROK's presidential national security, the Chinese ministry's spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters at a briefing. 

But he didn't give any details on the meeting's agenda.

Before ROK, Yang will also visit Singapore from August 19-20, Zhao said.
