Two Koreas to discuss announcing official end to war, report says

The festivities surrounded the April 15 "The Day of the Sun", the anniversary of the birth of the founder of North Korea and the Kim dynasty, Kim Il Sung, in 1912.

Kim and his wife Ri Sol-ju on Monday watched a ballet choreodrama of "Red Women Company" by the Chinese art troupe, the KCNA reported.

On last year's Day of the Sun, Kim put on a military parade bristling with his latest ballistic missiles, exacerbating worldwide tension over his nuclear weapon and missile programmes.

Song led a Chinese troupe to North Korea for the festival.

South Korea has listed 3 main issues to be discussed at its summit with North Korea next week.

Kim reportedly invited Xi to North Korea during his visit to China in late March.

United States envoy to the OPCW, Kenneth Ward, said: "It is our understanding the Russians may have visited the attack site". Mr Trump already made clear his commitment to further hit Syria, should Mr Assad attempt to use chemical weapons again.

The April 27 summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - the third-ever meeting of leaders from the two Koreas - may see the pair release a joint statement saying that they will seek to ease military tensions and to end confrontation, according to the official. With the test of that long-range missile in November, the North said it had "realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force". He will be the first North Korean leader to step on South Korean soil since the 1950s.

"Not long ago, President Xi said he is willing to maintain regular contact with Chairman Kim Jong Un through visits, special envoys and the exchange of letters", said spokesman Hua Chunying.

He stressed that Seoul will therefore make efforts to communicate with the United States as the country and North Korea work on their summit.

One way to resolve the conflict could involve returning the heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone to its original state, the Munhwa Ilbo newspaper said.

"Kazakhstan welcomes the restoration of inter-Korean dialogue and agreements to hold the summit between the Republic of Korea and the DPRK", Kairat Abdrakhmanov said.

South Korea and North Korea will hold this week talks at a high level, which will determine the agenda of the summit of leaders of the two countries, which is scheduled for April 27.
