A South Korean Unification Ministry official reported that North Korea had proposed holding a high-level meeting on May 16, adding that South Korea was in talks on final details of the meeting, according to Reuters.
"The high-level meeting of North Korean and South Korean officials on the implementation of provisions of the Panmunjom Peace Declaration… will take place in Panmunjom on May 16," the South Korean Unification Ministry said later in a statement.
North Korea has promised to send a 29-member delegation headed by the chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country, Yonhap reported.
The two states have recently made a major breakthrough in their relations, which began ahead of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games and resulted in the inter-Korean summit on April 27. During the historic event the sides signed a joint declaration agreeing to take measures to support international efforts aimed at denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and proceeding with reunification programs for separated Korean families.
