South Korea today said, North Korea has agreed to hold high-level talks with Seoul next week to discuss logistics for an inter-Korean summit. The South’s Unification Ministry said, the two sides will each send a three-member delegation to the border truce village of Panmunjom on Thursday for talks aimed at paving the way for a summit due next month.
The decision by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to meet came amid the resumption of harmonious relations between the two nations that kicked off with the recent Winter Olympics in the South.
The inter-Korean summit is due to be followed by a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Mr Kim by the end of May.
South Korea had, on Wednesday, proposed holding high-level talks with the North to discuss details including the summit’s dates and agenda.
On Tuesday, US and South Korea had announced that their annual joint military drills would go ahead next month, but the main exercise will be shortened by a month.
