Koreas Meet for Preliminary Talks on Volatile Border
VOA News – Talks led by colonels of the opposing Korean militaries were held at Panmunjom, Tuesday. This was the first such encounter since last November’s fatal shelling of a South Korean island by North Korea. South Korean officials say the two sides have agreed to hold further talks Wednesday. There are hopes this will mean an easing of tensions between the two Korea’s.
Defense officials say the first day of preliminary talks, in a building known as “Peace House,” in the demilitarized zone spanned more than nine hours, including several breaks.
