Seoul/Pyongyang, Aug 14 (IBNS): Neighbours South Korea and North Korea have agreed to hold talks at the latter's capital city, Pyongyang, in September, according to a report by the former's Yonhap news agency.

The decision was made on Monday, during a meeting between the two sides on the northern side of Panmunjom that separates the two Koreas.

However, the day of the meeting has not yet been decided.

Confirming the same, a joint press statement read: "We agreed to hold an inter-Korean summit within September in Pyongyang."

Earlier this year, in April and May, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un have met twice, as tension between the two states have decreased.

South Korea have also played a key part in normalising relation between the USA and North Korea.

However, citing irregularities from certain US officials, North Korea have halted its denuclearisation programme, which it had started following the meeting between Trump and Kim on June 12 in Singapore.

Following the two meeting, both the South and North have agreed to increase inter-Korean services, including railways, roads and sports.
