North, South Korea begin talks before possible Pyongyang summit
North and South Korean officials have begun high-level talks at the truce village of Panmunjom on Monday as they plan for a possible third summit between their leaders next month.
At their historic first summit in Panmunjom in April, South’s President Moon Jae-in and the North’s leader Kim Jong-Un had agreed to meet sometime in the fall in Pyongyang.
A spokesman for South Korea’s presidential Blue House said Monday’s talks will help decide the details of the summit, with some reports claiming it could be held by the end of August.
The South Korean delegation is led by Minister of Unification Cho Myoung-gyon, while Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North’s reunification committee, leads the North delegation.
