President Moon Jae-in (L) and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un meet for second summit in May.
South and North Korea have agreed to hold an inter-Korean summit between their leaders in Pyongyang in September.
The two Koreas issued a joint statement on the agreement after a high-level meeting held today on the northern side of the truce village of Panmunjom.
The planned summit in the fall would be President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's third summit following their first meeting in April and second in May.
The statement also said that the two Koreas reviewed the progress on the implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration reached in April and held consultations in a sincere manner on matters related to its more active enforcement.
They, however, failed to fix a specific date for the summit meeting.
Seoul's delegation to the meeting was led by Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, while their North Korean counterparts were led by Ri Son-gwon, the chairman of the North's Committee for Peaceful Reunification.■
