22 Jan For two years now, communication between North and South Korea has stopped – now Kim Jong Un has agreed to talks about the Winter Olympics
The meeting of government representatives is scheduled for Tuesday.
After months of escalation in the North Korea conflict increase the relaxation signals. For the first time in over two years, government officials from North and South Korea want to meet again next week for talks. The government in Pyongyang has accepted the invitation to a meeting in the border town of Panmunjom on Tuesday, said the reunification ministry in Seoul on Friday. It should be about the participation of North Korea in the Olympic Winter Games in South Korean Pyeongchang in February, but also to improve bilateral relations. US President Donald Trump also suggested a more moderate tone in the dispute over North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and welcomed dialogue.
The South Korean reunification ministry said the government in Seoul upheld the demand that North Korea abandon its nuclear program. In addition, she will remain in close contact with the US and its other allies during the talks. Both sides have yet to appoint their representatives for the meeting.
