Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), has made "a satisfactory agreement" with the Republic of Korea (RoK) envoy over a summit intention, Korean Central News Agency reported Tuesday (March 6).

"Hearing the intention of (RoK) President Moon Jae-in for a summit from the special envoy of the south side, he (Kim) exchanged views and made a satisfactory agreement," said the report.

"He (Kim) gave the important instruction to the relevant field to rapidly take practical steps for it," it said.

Kim received Moon's special envoy, Chung Eui-yong, top national security advisor for Moon and head of the National Security Office of the Blue House, shortly after the RoK delegation arrived here Monday (March 5).

During the meeting, Kim praised the PyeongChang Winter Olympics as a "very important occasion in demonstrating the stamina and prestige of our nation at home and abroad and providing a good atmosphere of reconciliation, unity and dialogue between the north and the south."

Chung handed Kim a personal letter from Moon, said the report.

The 10-member delegation also includes Suh Hoon, director of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), Vice Unification Minister Chung Hae-sung, Second Deputy NIS Director Kim Sang-gyun, and Yun Kun-young, a senior Blue House official.
