North, South Korea reportedly set to announce official end to war

He added it will likely focus on issues of denuclearisation and peace on the Korean peninsula, and an improvement in relations not only between the two Koreas but also with other countries including the United States.

The third inter-Korean summit, following two previous meetings in 2000 and 2007, will be held on the South Korean side of the truce village of Panmunjom.

"With a high degree of probability topics of the talks of President moon Jae-In and President, Kim Jong-UN will be the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, establishing a durable peace and the development of inter-Korean relations", - said the TV channel.

Since then, Kim has expressed an unprecedented willingness to talk to the South, a desire to talk about denuclearization with the United States, and travelled outside his country for the first time since assuming power in 2011 to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping.

"Then the detailed plans to execute the goals can be discussed at the North Korea-US summit".

South and North Korea have discussed plans to announce an official end to the military conflict between the two countries that are still technically at war, the Munhwa Ilbo newspaper reported, citing an unidentified South Korean official.

"We expect the summit will confirm the denuclearisation will (of North Korea), and hope to have a comprehensive agreement with the North on the matter", he said.

The recent thaw between Seoul and Pyongyang follows months of soaring tensions as the North conducted its most powerful nuclear test and launched more than 20 missiles - including two intermediate-range weapons that flew over Japan and another long-range missile that experts say puts the whole of the United States in striking distance.

The Chinese side will make a final decision after observing the results of the planned US-North summit, according to the Yomiuri.

A direct phone line between Moon and Kim may be connected around Friday, Moon's Chief of Staff Im Jong-seok said in a briefing on Tuesday, adding that it hasn't been decided when they will hold their first conversation.

Discussions are underway about live coverage of part of the meeting, Im said.

No peace treaty has been signed to replace the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War, and the US and North Korea have been at loggerheads since formal hostilities ended.
