North and South Korea held their First Official Talks after Years
North and South Korea on 9 June 2013 held their first official talks after two years
North and South Korea on 9 June 2013 held their first official talks after two years, confronting decades of mutual distrust, in a search for some positive end to months of soaring military tensions. The working-level discussions, which began in the border truce village of Panmunjom, were aimed at building a framework for ministerial-level talks tentatively scheduled for 10 June 2013 in Seoul.
The ministerial-level talks will focus on restoring suspended commercial links, including the Kaesong joint industrial complex that the North effectively shut down in April as tensions between the historic rivals peaked.
