Seoul's Unification Ministry said Tuesday the meeting at a border truce village will discuss ways to carry out peace commitments made between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President

The meeting comes ahead of the June 12 summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump. Those talks are part of a global diplomatic push to resolve the issue of Pyongyang's nuclear program.in their summit last month. The discussions may also include setting up working-level talks between the countries' sports officials over plans to field combined teams in certain sports at the Asian Games in August.

After their April 27 meeting, Kim and Moon issued a vague vow for the "complete" denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. They also agreed to stop all hostile acts over "land, sea and air" that can cause military tensions and clashes, and to resume temporary reunions between war-separated families.

South Korea, which brokered the planned talks between Trump and Kim, says Kim has genuine interested in dealing away his nuclear weapons in return for economic benefits.

But there are lingering doubts on whether Kim will ever agree to fully relinquish his nukes. Pyongyang for decades has been pushing a concept of "denuclearization" that bears no resemblance to the American definition, vowing to pursue nuclear development unless Washington removes its troops and the nuclear umbrella defending South Korea and Japan.

While the North on Saturday said it will invite foreign journalists to witness the closure of its nuclear test site between May 23 and 25, the announcement didn't include plans to permit outside verification experts at the site.
