North, South Korea High-Level Talks End Without Agreement, Further Meeting: Media


North and South Korea ended talks on Saturday without coming to any joint agreement, South Korean media reported.

Hwang Boogi, South Korea’s chief delegate, was quoted by the Yonhap News agency as saying the two Koreas had not scheduled any further meetings.

The South’s Unification Ministry, which handles inter-Korean affairs, was not immediately available for comment.

The meeting was the first forum for high-level discussions over a range of issues following an agreement in August that ended an armed standoff involving an exchange of artillery fire across the inter-Korean border.
