SEOUL, Oct. 12 (Yonhap) -- The two Koreas are preparing for high-level talks to discuss ways to implement their latest summit deal last month, Seoul's unification ministry said Friday.

"South and North Korea are in consultations on holding high-level talks soon for the implementation of the Pyongyang joint declaration," ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun said at press briefing.

He was referring to an accord between President Moon Jae-in and the North's leader Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang on Sept. 19. It calls for a set of measures on easing tensions and fostering inter-Korean exchanges.

He said the two sides have yet to work out the details of the planned dialogue, such as the exact timetable and location.

Citing the plan for the talks, Baik said the two Koreas have decided to skip a weekly meeting Friday at the inter-Korean joint liaison office in the North's border town of Kaesong.
