Koreas talks to prepare summit

North and South Korean officials have met at the truce village of Panmunjom to discuss security, protocol and other issues in preparation for the inter-Korean summit due to take place later this month.

The working-level talks on Thursday lasted for about 4 hours. The talks were held at a South Korean facility where President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are due to meet on April 27th.

The South Korean delegation to the talks included a presidential secretary for protocol, and a senior security official. The delegation from the North included a senior official from the state affairs commission.

South Korean officials declined to give details of the working-level talks, citing security reasons. They only disclosed that the discussions went well, with both sides committed to making the upcoming summit a success.
