North and South Korea to Hold 2nd Round of Talks
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korean media say North Korean officials visiting the South in a surprise trip have agreed to a second round of high-level talks with the South in late October or early November.
There were no other immediate details in the reports by Yonhap and YTN on Saturday.
The agreement came after North Korea's presumptive No. 2 leader led members of Pyongyang's inner circle on a rare trip Saturday to South Korea for the close of the Asian Games. The rivals held their highest level face-to-face talks in five years.
The North Korean delegation is led by Hwang Pyong So, the top political officer for the Korean People's Army and considered by outside analysts to be the country's second most important official after leader Kim Jong Un.
