A Blue House official, who declined to be identified, told reporters that the working-level dialogue to prepare for the summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and top DPRK leader Kim Jong-un will be held on Friday at the border village of Panmunjom.

Moon and Kim agreed to hold their third summit in the DPRK's capital Pyongyang for three days from Sept. 18.

The working-level officials from the two sides are expected to discuss protocol, security and media coverage during the upcoming summit.

Meanwhile, the meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) of the Blue House was chaired by Chung Eui-yong, top national security advisor for President Moon, earlier in the day.

NSC members, including presidential security secretaries, cabinet members in charge of defense, foreign affairs and unification and spy agency chief, discussed ways to manage security situations while President Moon stays in the DPRK's capital city.
