The rival Koreas were holding rare high-level military talks Thursday to discuss reducing tensions across their heavily fortified border. It's possible North Korean officials during the talks at the border village of Panmunjom will seek a firm commitment from the South on stopping its military drills with the United States. President Donald Trump said after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday that the allies should stop the war games during nuclear negotiations in "good faith".
Seoul's Defense Ministry said the military talks will focus on carrying out agreements from a summit between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in where they vowed to take concrete steps to reduce military tensions and eliminate the danger of war. The discussions are the first general-level talks between the militaries since December 2007.
