Good morning, Mark.
Today's inter-Korean general-level military talks are the first of their kind in more than ten years, the last time was in 2007.
South and North Korea are sending a five-member delegation each.
They are expected to discuss ways to ease tensions on the border, and ways to implement the Panmunjom Declaration, which two Koreas signed at the end of April after their historic summit.
South Korea's Unification Minister will talk to the South Korean delegation here, the Office for the Inter-Korean Dialogue in Seoul, and the minister will send them off to the border village of Panmunjom soon.
The talks will start in roughly three hours,.. and the first briefing will be held a couple of hours later at noon, Korea time.
It's expected that the talks will continue until five pm, and at six, they are slated to announce a joint agreement.
Currently, the talks are set for one day only, but more of these inter-Korean military talks on a variety of issues are expected to be held.
That's all I have for now.
I will bring you more updates later in the newscast.
Back to you, Mark.
