Inter-Korean summit on steady course despite delayed preparation meeting

SEOUL, Preparations are being made for the upcoming inter-Korean summit despite a delay in a proposed working-level meeting between the two sides, officials in Seoul said Thursday.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is set to visit Pyongyang from Tuesday through next Thursday for what would be his third bilateral meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

The leaders earlier met on April 27 and May 26 in the border village of Panmunjom that sits directly on the inter-Korean border.

The two Koreas earlier agreed to meet early this week to discuss details of the third Moon-Kim summit.

North Korea, however, remains silent on a South Korean proposal to hold such a meeting in Panmunjom since the start of this week, according to officials from the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae.
