South Korea says Pompeo complained about inter-Korean military pact

South Korea says Pompeo complained about inter-Korean military pactThe deal was sealed by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during their third summit in Pyongyang on Sept. 18-20. During an annual parliamentary audit on Wednesday, an opposition party lawmaker asked Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha if Pompeo had complained about the agreement during a phone call reported earlier by Japan’s Nikkei newspaper.

Inter-Korean summit chairs to feature disputed islands

Inter-Korean summit chairs to feature disputed islandsSouth Korea has custom-made furniture for Friday’s summit between President Moon Jae-in and the North’s leader Kim Jong Un — with chairs featuring disputed islands controlled by Seoul but claimed by Tokyo.
