Pyongyang and Seoul to hold another round of high-level talks

South and North Korea reportedly plan to conduct high-level talks this week as the estranged nations work towards a peace deal, the South Korean Unification Ministry said.

The two nations agreed to again have officials meet at the so-called neutral "truce village” of Panmunjom, which straddles their border. 

"The South and North will hold a high-level inter-Korea meeting on May 16 in the Peace House in Panmunjom, to discuss implementation of 'Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula," the ministry said in a statement

Representatives of the two countries would be returning to a site where North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un dramatically crossed the border into South Korea last month for a meeting with his southern counterpart, president Moon Jae-in, the Independent reported.

On April 27, Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in, met in the border village of Panmunjom for a historic summit, the first in more than a decade. They signed a joint Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula. Seoul and Pyongyang reaffirmed that their common objective is the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and reached an agreement on continuing active top-level dialogue.
