The Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) have agreed to live broadcast the upcoming inter-Korean summit on April 27, Seoul said Wednesday.

The two sides agreed to live broadcast the key schedules and events of the historic summit between ROK President Moon Jae-in and DPRK leader Kim Jong Un to the world, from the very first scene at which the two leaders shake hands.

The agreement came after the second round of working-level talks to discuss security, protocol and media coverage for the summit in the border village of Panmunjom earlier in the day.


Moon's office said the two sides largely reached an agreement on those issues, adding that more discussions will be made to draw up a more detailed plan for the summit.

Moon and Kim agreed to hold the third inter-Korean summit at Peace House, a ROK building in the Panmunjom, also called Joint Security Area (JSA) inside the demilitarized zone (DMZ) dividing the two Koreas.

Media speculate Kim will walk past blue buildings inside the truce village, which straddles the two Koreas, to cross the military demarcation line (MDL) on foot.
