They are serious: Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in will meet for a third summit in Pyongyang next month

The rival Koreas announced Monday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet in Pyongyang sometime in September. The push for what would be the leaders’ third summit since April comes amid renewed worries surrounding a nuclear standoff between Washington and Pyongyang. The announcement released after nearly two hours of talks led by the rivals’ chiefs for inter-Korean affairs was remarkably thin on details. In a three-sentence joint statement, the two sides did not mention an exact date for the summit and provided no details on how to implement past agreements. Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the North Korean agency that deals with inter-Korean affairs, told pool reporters at the end of the talks that officials agreed on a specific date for the summit in Pyongyang sometime within September, but he refused to share the date, saying he wanted to “keep reporters wondering.” He earlier told the South Korean delegation in opening remarks that the Koreas were like very close friends with an unbreakable bond.

It's nice to have some diplomacy during last six months, for a change instead of decades of military threats.

Nothing on implementing denuclearization of the peninsula, as agreed and clearly stated in the Panmunjom Declaration ? Moon govt / NK veer away from that as if that was a point exclusively discussed but not fully agreed during Singapore Summit  US and NK?
