 South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Jong-un, kicked off their historic summit Tuesday in hopes of reviving the stalled denuclearization talks between the US and the communist state.
 A closed-door meeting was held at the headquarters of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea from 3:45 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., marking the first inter-Korean summit at the North’s ruling party building. The meeting ran beyond the allotted time by 30 minutes.
 Accompanying Moon on the South Korean side was National Security Office chief Chung Eui-yong and National Intelligence Service chief Suh Hoon, while Kim was joined by his sister Kim Yo-jong, vice director of the Central Committee of the North’s Workers’ Party and deputy chief of the ruling party’s propaganda and agitation department, and Kim Yong-chol, vice chairman of the same Central Committee.
 Among items on the agenda were denuclearization, inter-Korean relations and ways to ease military tensions along the border. Meeting face-to-face again after their previous summit on May 26, the two leaders expressed hopes of achieving meaningful results at the meeting.

2. 23 Yemeni asylum seekers granted 1-year stay in South Korea
기사요약: 제주출입국·외국인청은 예멘 난민 심사 대상자 484명 중 지난 13일까지 면접을 완료한 440명 가운데 영유아 동반 가족과 임산부, 미성년자, 부상자 등 23명에 대한 인도적 체류를 허가하기로 했다고 9월 14일 밝혔다. 이에 제주 난민 인권을 위한 범도민 위원회는 “인도적 체류허가는 이름과 달리 인도적인 결정이 아니다”면서 “취업 허가만 주어질 뿐 의료보험을 포함한 4대 보험과 교육을 받을 권리, 자유롭게 여행할 권리 등 모든 사회적 권리가 배제되어 있다”고 비판했다.
 A total of 23 Yemeni asylum seekers – many of them minors -- have been granted a one-year stay in Korea, the Jeju Immigration Office said Friday. The Jeju Immigration Office, however, did not grant legal refugee status to any of the Yemeni applicants.
 The 23 are among some 500 Yemenis who have arrived on the country’s southernmost island of Jeju since January, fleeing a civil war in their home country. Some 440 of them have applied for asylum status in South Korea and the 23 are the first to receive their results.

*asylum status: 난민 신청
 The status given to the 23 Yemenis -- “humanitarian stay permits” -- are issued when an asylum seeker fails to establish eligibility for refugee status in Korea, but considered to have a need to stay in the country for other circumstances, such as armed conflicts back home and health conditions.
