SEOUL - The Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) agreed to hold high-level talks next week to discuss the implementation of the Pyongyang Declaration, which the leaders of the Koreas signed in their summit meeting in Pyongyang last month, Seoul's unification ministry said Friday.

The senior-level dialogue would be held on Oct 15 at the Peace House, a ROK's building in the truce village of Panmunjom. The ROK's delegation would be led by Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon.

During the talks, the two sides would discuss ways to implement the Pyongyang Declaration and determine schedule for the follow-up working-level dialogues, according to the unification ministry.

The ministry said the ROK's government would speed up the implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration and the Pyongyang Declaration to advance the inter-Korean relations to a higher level, while continuing efforts for peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula.

The Panmunjom Declaration was signed by ROK's President Moon Jae-in and top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un after their first summit in April at the border village. The Pyongyang Declaration was inked by Moon and Kim last month in Pyongyang.
