Hanoi (VNA) – The Republic of Korea (RoK) has proposed holding high-level talks with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on March 29 at Tongilgak, a DPRK building in the truce village of Panmunjom.

Kim Eui-kyeom, the Cheong Wa Dae (the Blue House)’s spokesman, told a press briefing in Seoul on March 21 that Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon will lead the three-member RoK delegation to the high-level talks. Two other members would be officials from the Blue House and the National Intelligence Service (NIS).

At the proposal of the RoK, the two sides will discuss basic matters for the April inter-Korean summit during the high-level dialogue, such as summit schedules, dialogue agenda and delegations from each side.

The inter-Korean summit would be followed by a summit between the US and the DPRK. US President Donald Trump said he would meet with top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un by the end of May to achieve a permanent denuclearization on the Korean peninsula.-VNA
