SEOUL – South Korean President Park Geun-hye said on Monday she was open to holding a summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and there was no pre-condition to having such talks.

An end to North Korea’s nuclear program should be an important part of discussions for peace on the Korean peninsula but it was not a pre-condition to having a summit meeting, Park told a televised news conference.
