Dear Readers,

North and South Korea are due to hold their first summit on April 27 to discuss denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and ways to improve ties.

It will be the first time in 10 years that the leaders of the two countries will be meeting. Our bureaus in South Korea, China, Japan, United States and elsewhere will be bringing you the latest on this crucial meeting. Find all our reports on straitstimes.com.

On the political front, the Workers' Party is due to elect a new secretary-general on April 8 and Mr Pritam Singh, the party's assistant secretary-general, is tipped to be the front-runner to succeed Party chief Low Thia Khiang.

Meanwhile, reports say, the Malaysia is likely to dissolve its Parliament later this week and Prime Minister Najib Razak will launch his ruling party Barisan Nasional's election manifesto on Saturday.
