North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in at a border village on April 27, the South announced Thursday, for a rare summit that could prove significant in global efforts to resolve the decadeslong standoff over the North's nuclear program.Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, one of three South Korean participants in Thursday's talks, told reporters beforehand that setting up discussions between the leaders on the North's nuclear disarmament would be a critical point.When asked whether such issues would shape the discussions between Kim and Moon, Cho said "Yes".The countries also agreed to hold a separate meeting to discuss communication, such as setting up a telephone hotline between Moon and Kim, and maintain working-level discussions, according to the statement.The talks follow a surprise meeting this week between Kim and Chinese President Xi Jinping which appeared to be aimed at improving both countries' positions ahead of Kim's planned summits with Moon and U.S. President Donald Trump.
