SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea says it has begun preliminary contacts with North Korea on a reopened cross-border communication system.
The South’s Unification Ministry says the 2 Koreas have been speaking through the channel on the border village of Panmunjom on Wednesday.
The assertion says officers have been first making an attempt to look at whether or not the speaking traces have been working properly.
North Korea says chief Kim Jong Un reopened the channel earlier Wednesday, a day after South Korea provided talks on the best way to cooperate with the North throughout subsequent month’s Winter Olympics within the South.
China welcomed the transfer, with International Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang telling reporters that China hopes “all sides involved will seize this optimistic flip of occasions.”
