S. Korea Picks 'Peace, a New Start' as Slogan for Inter-Korean Summit

Noting his meeting with Kim will soon be followed by a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader, Moon said the upcoming summits will mark a "great transition" in the history of the world. "That is why the visit planned for the first half of 2018 had to be postponed", Ambassador Kim Dae sik told the press conference in Astana.

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.

At next week's summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the two neighbors may release a joint statement stating they will seek to ease military tension and to end confrontation, according to the report.

The festival is a biennial event held to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Kim Il Sung, North Korea's founder and grandfather of the current leader.

Kim's warm welcome contrasts with Song's last visit to Pyongyang last November, when he was sent as Xi's special envoy to discuss the outcome of China's 19th Party Congress.

Xi is expected to visit in late May or early June, after the U.S.

"The inter-Korean summit can be seen as a touchstone, an overture ahead of a more important North Korea-US summit", he said, adding that if both summits were a success "many possibilities", such as normalization of political relations, economic cooperation, etc., would open up for all the participants, especially Pyongyang.

"China cannot stop imposing sanctions against North Korea due to the UN Security Council's resolution on sanctions against the country, but China can still offer assistance to North Korea in sectors irrelevant of the sanctions", an official was quoted as saying. "The United States will insist on complete, irreversible and verifiable North Korea's abandonment of its nuclear program in rigid timeframe". Koreans from all four corners of the peninsula hope that Panmunjom - for so long a symbol of division - may become a symbol of peace as the regular meeting place for the leaders of the two Koreas. North Korea might have wanted to increase its leverage ahead of the historic summits, and China might have meant to show that it is still a major player in resolving the North's nuclear standoff.

The comments by culture minister Do Jong-whan came as the country's conservative newspaper Munwha Ilbo said the two Koreas were discussing plans to announce an official end to the military conflict on the peninsula.
