South Korea, DPRK resume top-level talks

Top-level talks between South Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea resumed on Sunday afternoon, after a half-day break.

The senior-level contact first began on Saturday afternoon at the truce village of Panmunjom inside the demilitarized zone dividing the two Koreas.

During the 10-hour marathon talks, both sides discussed ways of resolving the recent situations and developing inter-Korean relations.

Officials hope the talks could narrow differences after reviewing the positions of each other.

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula has intensified lately.

From Aug. 10, the South Korean military resumed blaring propaganda loudspeakers, silenced for the past 11 years, in frontline units in retaliation for a landmine blast that wounded two South Korean soldiers.

The DPRK threatened indiscriminate strikes against the loudspeakers.
