SEOUL/PAJU, June 6 (Yonhap) -- Working-level officials of the United States and North Korea met again at the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjom on Wednesday to discuss the agenda for the historic summit between the leaders of the two countries next week.

Sung Kim, U.S. ambassador to the Philippines and former nuclear envoy, and Pyongyang's Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui began the talks at a North Korean building in the village at 10 a.m., according to Seoul officials well-versed on the matter.

The two sides are expected to fine-tune the agenda ahead of the June 12 summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, which will focus on the North's denuclearization and Washington's security guarantee.

The officials had five rounds of talks to prepare for the summit starting on May 27 at the same venue.
