The top nuclear envoys of the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Japan met on April 23 to discuss cooperation on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) and its nuclear issue ahead of the upcoming historic inter-Korean summit.

Lee Do-hoon, RoK's top nuclear negotiator, held the meeting with his Japanese counterpart, Kenji Kanasugi, in Seoul.

The meeting comes after the leaders of the United States and Japan met this week and exchanged views on the DPRK's nuclear issue.

The two Koreas are set to hold a summit on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom on April 27, which will likely be followed by another summit between the US and the DPRK either in May or early June.

Denuclearization of the DPRK and building lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula are expected to top the agenda at the summits.
