Hanoi (VNA) - The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) has suggested holding joint activities in the Republic of Korea (RoK) to celebrate the first inter-Korean summit in 2000.

The suggestion was made during the high-level talks at the border truce village of Panmunjom to discuss inter-Korean affairs on June 1.

The meeting was chaired by RoK Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon and Ri Son-gwon, Chairman of the DPRK's Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country.

The two sides discussed ways to follow up on the agreement reached during the first summit between RoK President Moon Jae-in and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un on April 27.

The RoK called for the launching of a joint liaison office in the DPRK border city of Kaesong, which was agreed by the DPRK side.

The first inter-Korean summit was held in June 2000 in Pyongyang. After the summit, the June 15 Joint Declaration was announced by then RoK President Kim Dae-jung and then DPRK leader Kim Jong Il.-VNA
