South and North Korea have begun their high-level talks to discuss holding a third summit between their leaders.
The talks started at 10 a.m. Monday at the northern side of the truce village of Panmunjeom that separates the two Koreas.
South Korea's four-member delegation is led by Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, while Ri Son-gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Country, heads the North's five-member delegation.
Before departing for the meeting, the unification minister said that the delegation will discuss the overall implementation of the Panmunjeom Declaration announced after the April inter-Korean summit.
Cho added that the two sides will also exchange views on the autumn summit meeting agreed upon in the declaration.
