The two Koreas have agreed to hold summit on 27th April for a rare inter-Korean summit at the South’s Peace House in Panmunjom.
The meeting between Kim Jong Un, leader of nuclear-armed North Korea, and the South’s President Moon Jae-in will be only the third of its kind, and will be followed by landmark talks with U.S. President Donald Trump which could come as early as may.
The venue will make Kim the first North Korean leader to set foot in the south since the end of the Korean War. Although according to Pyongyang’s official accounts, during the conflict Kim’s grandfather and predecessor Kim Il sung went several times to Seoul, which twice fell to his forces.
Another round of working-level talks next Wednesday will discuss issues including protocol and security.
