The leaders of North and South Korea will hold a summit on April 27, Seoul Unification Ministry officials said Thursday, according to media reports. Kim Jong Un will meet the South’s President Moon Jae In at the border village of Panmunjom in only the third summit between the two Koreas ever. The meeting, which came after high-level talks between Pyongyang and Seoul, will be watched for any signs of movement over North Korea’s nuclear program. After a surprise visit to Chinese President Xi Jinping this week, Kim said he was committed to denuclearizing the Korean peninsula and is open to starting a dialogue with the U.S. The North Korean leader is expected to travel to the U.S. in May for a face-to-face meeting with President Donald Trump.
