North and South Korea Schedule Talks at Panmunjom Within Days

(From The Guardian)

The two Koreas are to hold high-level talks on 29 March to prepare for an April summit between both countries’ leaders, Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in.

South Korea has announced that its unification minister Cho Myoung-gyon will lead a delegation to the border village of Panmunjom, where they will meet Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North’s agency for inter-Korean affairs. Officials will discuss the date and specific agendas of the April summit.

President Moon’s envoys visited Kim in Pyongyang earlier this month, and South Korean officials have also brokered a potential meeting between Kim and President Donald Trump by the end of May. The heads of the two Koreas have held talks only twice since the 1950-53 Korean War.
