North and South Korea have agreed to hold general-level military talks on July 31, Reuters reports with reference to the South’s Yonhap news agency.

The talks will be held at the border village of Panmunjom within the demilitarised zone that separates the two countries.

The agenda for the meeting has not been revealed yet. The two sides previously met in June. It was a historic moment, because the two sides met for the first time in over a decade.

Earlier, North and South Korea agreed to resume reuniting families that were separated by the border after the end of the Korean war. The last time that such family reunions took place was in 2015. Subsequently, the reunions were stopped as a result of the deterioration of relations between the two Koreas due to active missile testing by Pyongyang.
