Inter-Korean summits

Political events

Inter-Korean summits are meetings between the leaders of North Korea and South Korea. There have been five such meetings so far. The importance of these summits lies in the lack of formal communication between North and South Korea, which makes discussing political and economic issues difficult. The summits' agendas have included topics such as the ending of the 1953 war, the massive deployment of troops at the DMZ, the development of nuclear weapons by North Korea, and human rights issues.
