S. Korea, DPRK agree to restore military communication lines after talks
South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea agreed on Thursday to restore military communications lines along the eastern and western areas after holding military talks, according to local media.
General-level military officers from the two sides held talks on military affairs, the first of its kind in over 10 years, at Tongilgak, a DPRK building in the truce village of Panmunjom that straddles the divided Koreas. The last general-level military dialogue between Seoul and Pyongyang was held in December 2007.
During the talks, the two sides exchanged opinions about a pilot demilitarization of the Joint Security Area in Panmunjom to ease military tensions across the heavily armed inter-Korean border.
