SEOUL, May 15 (Yonhap) -- North Korea has proposed holding high-level inter-Korean talks this week to discuss follow-up measures on agreements their leaders reached in a historic summit held last month, Seoul's unification ministry said Tuesday.

The North proposed holding the talks on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom on Wednesday, according to a ministry official. The ministry is planning to soon send a response, accepting the proposal.

The meeting will mark the first time that officials of the two Koreas sit down for talks following the April 27 summit held between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
