WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. delegation is meeting with North Korean officials in Panmunjom, at the border between North and South Korea, about a possible U.S.-North Korea summit, a State Department spokeswoman said on Sunday.

“A U.S. delegation is in ongoing talks with North Korean officials at Panmunjom,” spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement. “We continue to prepare for a meeting between the President and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.”
