OFFICIALS from North and South Korea have identified a place where leaders of two countries will meet within less than a month from now, BBC reports.
It was announced that North’s Kim Jong-un and South Korean president Moon Jae-in would meet on 27 April in the border village.
It was later known that they will meet at a village called Panmunjom to discuss various issues regarding their nations, officials said in a joint statement.
The announcement comes a day after news emerged of discussions between Mr. Kim and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
At the meeting in Beijing, the North Korean leader repeated his offer to denuclearise the Korean Peninsula.
The North Korean leader said recently that he wants to meet US President Donald Trump. Mr. Trump accepted the offer and they could meet as soon as May.
Yesterday (Wednesday), Trump welcomed news of progress following the talks between the Chinese and North Korean leaders in Beijing.
The notice of a date for talks between North and South Korea is the latest move in a flurry of diplomatic activity since the start of the year, which saw the North attend the Winter Olympics in South Korea.
