    BEIJING (Sputnik) - Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will travel to North Korea at the beginning of next month, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement Monday.

    "At the invitation of his North Korean counterpart Ri Yong Ho the Chinese foreign minister will pay a visit to North Korea on May 2-3," the statement read.

    It did not provide more details on the matter.

    The statement comes after a historic inter-Korean summit, which took place on Friday at the truce village of Panmunjom. During the meeting the leaders of the two Koreas signed a joint declaration, agreeing to take measures to support international efforts aimed at denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and proceed with reunion programs for the separated Korean families.
