SEOUL, Feb. 4 (Yonhap) — South Korea will begin to push for a meeting between President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un following the end of the Lunar New Year’s Day to help implement the North’s denuclearization pledge that will likely be refined in an upcoming U.S.-North Korea summit, observers here noted Monday.

The Moon-Kim summit, if held, will mark the fourth of its kind since the two leaders first met in April 2018 at the border village of Panmunjom inside the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone. They met again in May and September.

“An inter-Korean summit will naturally be the next step following the second North Korea-U.S. summit,” an official from Seoul’s presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said, while speaking on condition of anonymity.
