SEOUL, July 27 (Yonhap) -- South and North Korea have agreed to hold general-level military talks next week to discuss measures to enforce the military part of their April summit agreement, Seoul's defense ministry said Friday.

The talks will take place at Peace House, a South Korea-controlled building at the border truce village of Panmunjom, at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.

Major Gen. Kim Do-gyun will lead South Korea's five-member delegation, while the North Korean side will be represented by Lieut. Gen. An Ik-san.

The last such talks were held on June 14, for the first time in more than a decade, at Panmunjom. At the time, the two sides agreed to completely restore their military communication lines.

After their April 27 summit, South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un issued the Panmunjom Declaration that called for joint efforts to alleviate military tensions and "practically eliminate the danger of war."
