North and South Korean leaders would meet in Pyongyang for third Inter-Korean Summit to discuss measures to establish peace and ease tensions in the Korean Peninsula.
The meeting between President Moon Jae-in and Chairman Kim Jong Un holds from September 18 – 20, 2018 in North’s capital.
The two previous summits were held respectively on April 27th and May 26th at Panmunjeom, a village located between the two Koreas. In the first inter-Korean summit, the two sides adopted “The Panmunjeom Declaration” through which the common goal of complete denuclearization was reiterated.
During the 2018 summit, the two Koreas have agreed to examine the outcome of the implementation of the Panmunjeom Declaration and confirm how to push for the Declaration going forward.
The discussions at the summit will also be centred on issues on the permanent settlement of peace and common prosperity on the Korean Peninsula as well as, particularly, practical measures to realize denuclearization on the Peninsula.
