Korea Bans Port Entry of 4 Ships that Transported N. Korean Coal

South Korean Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon and Ri Son Gwon chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country arrive for their meeting at the truce village of Panmunjom

Kim Jong-un will host South Korea's President Moon in the North Korean capital Pyongyang next month after the two nations agreed to go ahead with their third peace summit.

The summit announcement came after North and South Korean government officials held talks on the northern side of the border village of Panmunjom.

Kim Eui-keum, a spokesman for Moon, said that holding the summit before September 10 would be hard due to logistics.

Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland who led the delegation from the DPRK, told reporters after the talks that detailed schedule for the summit was already agreed upon.

"As the Pyongyang summit of the leaders of North and South Korea is being pursued, I believe that we can give concrete answers to the problems that the people hope and wish for", Ri said during the talks, according to South Korea's Unification Ministry.

The Moon-Kim summit in April was historical as it broke a long spell of hostility between the two sides after the last summit in 2007 in Pyongyang.

The agreement between the two countries' unification ministers comes amid an ongoing nuclear stand-off between Washington and Pyongyang.

Today's fresh round of talks saw both sides agreed on specific details, including the date for the summit, but exact details remain muddy. As The Korea Herald reports, on September 9, North Korea will celebrate 70 years of existence under the regime that was founded by Kim Jong Un's grandfather, Kim Il Sung. They agreed at the time to meet in the fall in Pyongyang.

Parker was the first one to postulate the existence of solar wind in 1958. "We can now add solid physics to the models", Fox said. Eight long years of hard work by countless engineers and scientists is finally paying off.

The meeting comes amid a growing standoff on North Korean denuclearization that has followed Kim's summit with President Donald Trump in June in Singapore.

Cho said he will listen to the North's views and firmly explain Seoul's position.

But although Trump touted his summit with Kim as a historic breakthrough, the nuclear-armed North has since criticized Washington for its "gangster-like" demands of complete, verifiable and irreversible disarmament.

"It's too early for that even as we seek improvement in relations between the North and the South and between the North and the United States", Harris said, adding the allies share the "same goal" of the "final, fully verified denuclearisation" of the peninsula.

Experts say there has been slow progress on those efforts since the Singapore summit.
