North, South Korea to inaugurate presidential hotline

the presidential Blue House
A presidential hotline could soon be established between the two leaders of the Koreas, an unprecedented move for both sides.

The phone line connecting Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in is being pursued as part of an agreement reached Monday during inter-Korea talks in Pyongyang, South Korean newspaper Hankyoreh reported Wednesday.

The line will be established within 50 days, or before the April inter-Korea summit that is to take place between Moon and Kim, according to the report.

The phone could sit on Moon's desk in his office at the presidential Blue House and is part of Moon's larger plan to organize a "preparatory committee" for the next round of political talks on a "peace settlement on the Korean Peninsula," according to the president's office.
