SEOUL, Aug. 13 (Yonhap) -- The proposed summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will likely be held in mid or late September, an official from Seoul's presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said Monday, hours after high-level officials from the two Koreas agreed to hold the inter-Korean summit next month.

"To add a little, I believe (holding the summit) in early September might be little difficult," Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told reporters.

The remarks came shortly after the two Koreas agreed to hold the third Moon-Kim summit in Pyongyang in September.

Moon and Kim agreed to hold a summit in Pyongyang this fall when they first met on April 27 at the border town of Panmunjom inside the heavily-fortified Demilitarized Zone that divides the two Koreas.

The leaders of the two Koreas met again on May 26, only on the North Korean side of the DMZ that time.
