    Japanese state broadcaster NHK says South Korea's labor minister Yim Tae-hee and Kim Yang-gon, the director of the United Front Department under the North Korean Workers' Party met in Singapore on Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss a possible inter-Korean summit.

    Quoting South Korean government sources, NHK said the meeting ended without any progress as the two sides could not agree on a location for the summit.

    The South Korean official reportedly proposed that Seoul host the next summit as the past two were held in Pyongyang. But the North Koreans refused.
