Leaders of two Koreas to open communication hotline: Seoul

Seoul (AFP) – The two Koreas agreed to open a communication hotline between their leaders, Seoul’s envoy said Tuesday after meeting with the North’s leader Kim Jong Un during a rare trip to Pyongyang. 

“The South and the North agreed to a hotline between the leaders to ease military tension and have close coordination, and agreed to hold the first phone conversation before the third summit,” said Chung Eui-yong, the national security advisor to South Korean President Moon Jae-in. 

Chung also said the two nations had agreed to hold a summit at the border truce village of Panmunjom in late April.
