SEOUL, Oct. 12 (Yonhap) -- The two Koreas will hold high-level talks next week on ways to implement their latest summit deal, Seoul's unification ministry announced Friday.

The two sides agreed to have the meeting at the Peace House, a South Korea-controlled building in the truce village of Panmunjom, on Monday, according to the ministry.

The South had proposed holding the talks on Friday, but the North presented a counteroffer for Monday.

"This afternoon, the government sent a message to accept it," it added.

President Moon Jae-in and the North's leader Kim Jong-un produced a far-reaching accord in Pyongyang on Sept. 19. It calls for a set of measures on easing tensions and fostering inter-Korean exchanges.
