South Korea Wednesday proposed to North Korea a high-level meeting next week to discuss the details of an upcoming summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in April.

South Korea put forward the proposal during the second meeting of a committee, appointed to prepare for the Moon-Kim summit, at the South Korean presidential office, a cabinet spokesperson confirmed to EFE.

Seoul has proposed the talks be held at the Joint Security Area in the so-called truce village of Panmunjom and intends to send its proposal to the North Korean regime through the South Korean unification ministry soon, the spokesperson said in a statement.

The two countries, who have been technically at war for over six decades now, earlier this month agreed to hold the first inter-Korean summit in 11 years in April and discuss possible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula amid a spirit of rapprochement between the two countries, following the Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

The summit between Moon and Kim, for which no date has been set as yet, will precede a much anticipated summit between the North Korean leader and United States President Donald Trump.
