The announcement comes a day after news emerged of discussions between Mr Kim and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The leaders will hold talks at the Peace House in the border village of Panmunjom, a joint statement said, according to the South's Yonhap news agency.

It will mark the third inter-Korean summit following those in 2000 and 2007 which were held in Pyongyang.

However, the North has yet to officially confirm its interest in a summit between the leaders.

Trump welcomed the meeting between Kim and Xi, while calling for continued pressure against the isolated regime.

Trump is expected to meet with the North Korean despot before the end of May.

With Kim visiting China and planning to meet with South Korean and US presidents-Pyongyang offered a summit with President Donald Trump but has yet to officially react to his positive response-Japan is also taking diplomatic steps toward Pyongyang as not to be left out.

The trip was in part an effort to mend an old alliance which has been strained in recent years. "This, as it is known to all, is what the Chinese side has insisted on and persistently worked for", Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang told a regular press briefing, calling for all parties involved in the area to support inter-Korean talks "to promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the political settlement of the Peninsula issue".

South Korea's presidential office said a Chinese official was heading to South Korea to brief President Moon about the summit this week between North Korea's and China's leaders.

He said North Korea was determined to embark on a relationship of reconciliation and cooperation with South Korea and was willing to hold a summit with the United States.

"This language (of denuclearization) is not new, it's been around for quite a long time, and the core point is its highly conditional". On the same lines, a proposed summit is expected to take place between President Trump and Kim in May.

Thursday's North and South Korean delegations were both headed by the same men who engaged in the first negotiations in January, after Pyongyang agreed to reopen diplomatic communications with Seoul.

South Korea's Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, who led a three-member delegation to the latest high-level talks, said another high-level meeting between the two Koreas could be held next month "if necessary" to further discuss key agenda items for the summit.

Talks between the two sides began at Tongil-gak, the northern side of Panmunjom, in the highly fortified DMZ shortly after 10 a.m. local time, wrapping up in the early afternoon.

But a rapid rapprochement on the peninsula was kicked off by the Winter Olympics in the South and events have moved quickly since then, with a flurry of official visits between the two Koreas. "But if both sides keep deeply aware of the historic significance and importance of the summit meeting, and work hard with prudence and a cooperative attitude, we will be able to discuss and resolve every issue swiftly and smoothly".

The North Korean representative Ri agreed, saying visiting Tongil-gak was "emotional" for all Korean visitors.
