Washington, Seoul to hold defense talks Monday

The United States and South Korea are set to hold the 20th Korea-US Integrated Defense Dialogue in Seoul on Monday to talk about regional security threats, the South Korean defense ministry said.

The United States Department of Defense and the South Korean Ministry of National Defense are expected to discuss "major pending security issues" regarding the Korean peninsula, according to the ministry.

The news comes just days after North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's sister Kim Yo-jong said that Pyongyang is prepared to organize an inter-Korean summit and formally declare an end to the Korean War if the other side shows "fairness and mutual respect."
