The militaries of North and South Korea have held talks in an attempt to further defuse tensions at the two countries’ borders.
The meeting was held in the village of Pan-mun-jom in the Demilitarized Zone. It was designed to follow on from an inter-Korean summit in April during which the leaders of the two countries agreed to halt all hostile acts. Meanwhile, U-S intelligence agencies have reportedly found that North Korea is building new missiles, based on satellite photographs taken in recent weeks. The Washington Post says the factory, where the work is underway, produced North Korea’s first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States.
