    Two Koreas hold talks to discuss improved ties

    Nov 26, Seoul: Officials from North and South Korea met on Thursday at a border village in an attempt to realize high-level talks as part of their agreements that defused a military standoff in August.

    The meeting is aimed at discussing when and where those high-level talks should be held with what agenda, according to Seoul's Unification Ministry. The Ministry said, the rivals threatened war against each other last summer over land mine explosions blamed on Pyongyang that maimed two South Korean soldiers.

    The standoff was eased later in August when the Koreas met for marathon talks and agreed on a set of tension-reduction deals that includes resuming talks between senior officials.

    Last month, the two Koreas held reunion of families separated by war for the first time since February 2014, a sign that they were carrying out on reconciliation efforts stipulated in the August agreements.

    There are still continuing animosities between the rivals, which remain divided along the world's most heavily fortified border since their 1950-1953 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty, Associated Press said..
