SEOUL -- South Korea is considering hosting another summit with North Korea during the summer to press Pyongyang on concrete steps toward full denuclearization, Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha said Wednesday.

Kang said President Moon Jae-in could meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at an earlier date than the meeting planned for Pyongyang in the autumn. Moon and Kim had their first meeting at the border village of Panmunjom in April, followed by a surprise two-hour meeting in May.
