North South Korea send delegations to discuss meeting for leaders

During inter-Korean talks on Tuesday, the two Koreas agreed to hold South Korean cultural performances in the North Korean capital featuring cross-generational stars, including veteran pop legend Cho Yong-pil, the five-member girl band Red Velvet and Seohyun, a former member of the girl group Girls' Generation.

North Korea on Saturday agreed to hold high-level talks with Seoul next week to discuss logistics for a rare inter-Korean summit, the South's Unification Ministry said, as a diplomatic thaw on the peninsula gathers pace.

He attended the games along with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sister, Kim Yo Jong.

Following a period of heightened tensions stoked by the North's nuclear and missile tests past year, a rapid rapprochement has been underway on the Korean peninsula.

Addressing the UN General Council, Trump said that "the United States would, if necessary to protect itself or its allies, "totally destroy North Korea" and the "Rocket Man" who runs it".

The North's delegation will be led by Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North's agency that deals with inter-Korean affairs.


It was against this background that President Trump's move to agree for a meeting with North Korean leader Kim was seen very surprising. North Korea has been notified of the schedule "as well as the defensive nature" of the exercises, the Pentagon said.

The lack of North Korean confirmation that Kim was willing to meet Trump to talk about denuclearization has only exacerbated those doubts.

The North Korean leader, Kim reportedly understands that the drill needs to be continued. As reports suggest, global sanctions, in turn, have resulted in North Korea facing a possible crisis of foreign cash.

The planned summit between Moon and Kim will be preceded by performances of South Korean pop singers in Pyongyang on April 1, followed by a joint performance with North Korean artists on April 3.

"Thanks to the proactive measure and peace-loving proposal made by the DPRK, dramatic atmosphere for reconciliation has been created in relations between the north and the south of Korea and there has been a sign of change also in the DPRK-U.S. relations", the KCNA commentary said, using the abbreviation for North Korea's official name.
