SEOUL -- North and South Korea agreed Monday to host their third summit this year in Pyongyang in September, the presidential Blue House said Monday, despite little progress in denuclearization talks between the U.S. and North Korea.

Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon met his North Korean counterpart Ri Son Gwon at the border village of Panmunjom and confirmed the schedule of the summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The two leaders had met in April and May.
