South Korea and DPRK held the first negotiations in 7 years

For the first time in seven years, senior officials from South and North Korea held a summit meeting. These negotiations can set the tone for the further development of inter-Korean relations after several months of tension.

The delegation of South Korea at the talks held at the Pangmuju border point was introduced by the head of the secretariat of the National Security Council under the government. The delegation of the DPRK was headed by Von Don Yong, deputy head of the United Front - an organization dealing with relations with South Korea.

The agenda of the talks is not disclosed by the parties. According to experts, the details of the meeting of families separated during the Korean War 1950 - 1953 years were discussed at the talks. In addition, it is possible that North Korea has tried to dissuade South from holding annual joint military exercises with the US, the beginning of which is scheduled for 24 February. Recall that earlier the DPRK declared its readiness to resume talks with South Korea and the United States on its nuclear program. However, Seoul and Washington said that the resumption of negotiations is possible only if the DPRK declares its readiness to take real steps to renounce nuclear weapons.
