North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reopened a key cross-border communication channel with South Korea for the first time in almost two years Wednesday as the rivals explored the possibility of sitting down and talking after months of acrimony and fears of war. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently reopened a key cross-border communication channel with South Korea that had been dormant since February 2016.
The announcement came hours after the United States said it had agreed to delay joint military exercises with South Korea until after the Winter Olympics.
The meeting will take place at the border truce village of Panmunjom where officials from both sides are expected to discuss the Winter Olympics, to be held in the South next month, and inter-Korean relations, South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun told reporters.
