North Korea: North-South communications channel in Panmunjom reopens after 2 years silence

Chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification Ri Son Gwon made an historic announcement in Pyongyang on Wednesday, as he confirmed that the Panmunjom liaison channel between North and South Korea had re-opened for the first time after closing nearly two years ago. Speaking from a nationally broadcast press conference in Pyongyang, Ri announced that, «(Kim Jong Un) gave an order to... Еще resume the Panmunjom liaison channel between the North and South from 15:00 (06:30 GMT) on January 3 to coordinate on time with the South on the matter of sending a delegation to the Pyeongchang Olympics and holding talks for this.» The Chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification added that North Korean leader Kim Jung Un “expressed that he welcomed the South's position.» On Tuesday, the South Korean government proposed holding high-level talks with North Korea on January 9 over their possible involvement in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. This followed North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's New Year's speech, in which he stated that Pyongyang was «open to dialogue» with South Korea, and added that a North Korean team may attend the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang.
