North Korea, South Korea agree to hold military talks

Delegations from both sides gathered at border village of Panmunjom on Tuesday

The two Koreas have agreed in a joint statement to hold talks on reducing military tensions and "actively co-operate" in next month's Winter Olympic Games in South Korea.

Senior officials of the rival Koreas gathered at the border village of Panmunjom on Tuesday for their first formal talks in about two years.

South Korean media say they issued a statement after the meeting in which they agreed to hold military talks aimed at reducing animosity along their tense border.

The statement says North Korea also agreed to send a delegation to the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and work for the success of the Games.
