Unification minister calls for N. Korea to implement summit agreements

(VOVWORLD) -  South Korea’s Unification Minister Lee In-young on Wednesday called for North Korea to implement agreements the leaders of the two Koreas reached during their 2018 summit talks and move forward the stalled inter-Korean relations.

Lee made the appeal during his first trip to the truce village of Panmunjom since his inauguration in July, also expressing hope for reopening severed communication lines and "open-minded" dialogue between the two Koreas as soon as possible. Lee's trip came days ahead of the second anniversary of a summit agreement signed between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang on Sept. 19, 2018, to reduce tensions and bolster cooperation.
