South Korea agrees on a proposal of North Korea to resume the inter-Korean ministerial talks later this month in Pyongyang, said South Korean Unification Ministry on Friday.
The 18th round of the meeting, which originally was scheduled to be held in late March, was put off by North Korea due to South Korea-US annual military drills.
"The North side on Thursday proposed holding the next round of ministerial talks on April 21-24 in Pyongyang," Yang Chang-seok, a spokesman of the South Korean Unification Ministry said.
While, the ministry sent a telegram under the name of South Korea's chief delegate to the talks, Unification Minister Lee Jong-seok, earlier Friday to inform the North side that it agrees with North Korea's proposal, added Yang.
