South Korea on 11 June 2013 called off the high-level talks with North Korea, as scheduled to begin in Seoul on 12 June 2013. The two sides had agreed to the two-day talks, expected to focus primarily on joint economic projects. On the eve of the meeting, the two remained unable to agree on the composition of their delegations.
The two Koreas had exchanged undisclosed lists of five representatives, but could not reach a consensus. It was not immediately clear whether the talks, scheduled to take place at a hotel in Seoul, had been postponed or cancelled.
The scheduled talks were an opportunity to improve relations after months of military tensions between the two nations. North Korea threatened nuclear war while South Korea issued stern warning in response.
