SEOUL, Dec. 8 (Yonhap) -- Seoul and Pyongyang have not agreed on possible dates for a visit to Seoul by the North's leader Kim Jong-un, the presidential office said Saturday, denying a media report that he may come next week.
The remark came in response to a media report that claimed Kim will visit the South on Thursday, and that the presidential office and police held a meeting to discuss preparations.
"For now, we have not received any messages from the North," said Yoon Young-chan, the chief press secretary of President Moon Jae-in.
Kim promised to visit Seoul before the year's end when he held his third summit with Moon in Pyongyang in September.
