SEOUL, May 7 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in is scheduled to hold phone talks with U.S. President Donald Trump Tuesday night over situations on the Korean Peninsula, according to the presidential Blue House of South Korea.

Ko Min-jung, Blue House spokesperson, told a press briefing that the leaders of South Korea and the United States will exchange opinion about the Korean Peninsula situations unfolded after the Washington summit between Moon and Trump on April 11.

Moon and Trump are slated to discuss ways to move forward the current phase, said Ko expecting the two leaders to exchange opinion about the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)'s short-range projectiles launch over the weekend.

The DPRK fired several short-range projectiles, believed to have been launched from multiple rocket launchers and a new type of tactical guided weapons, into the sea from the east coast city of Wonsan Saturday morning.

It came after the second summit between top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un and Trump ended with no agreement in late February at the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.
