N. Korea “positive” about inter-Korean conference in Pyongyang next week: NGO

Despite initial reports that DPRK would cancel event, June 15 Committee claims plan is approved

The June 15 South Korean Committee has received a positive response from its counterparts in the North to host an inter-Korean event in Pyongyang next week to celebrate the 17th anniversary of the June 15th North–South Joint Declaration, the NGO said on Monday night.

While initial reports in South Korea claimed that the North Korean side had cancelled the event, the committee said such claims were unfounded and that they will soon contact the South Korean government for approval to visit Pyongyang next week.
