SEOUL -- South Korea is exploring the idea of issuing a joint declaration on denuclearization when President Moon Jae-in meets with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on April 27, though any agreement would prove difficult to enforce without American involvement.
Seoul's top priorities with the inter-Korean summit are "denuclearization and sustained peace," a senior official in the presidential Blue House told reporters on Tuesday.
