Two Koreas take each other on at int'l table tennis tournament in Russia Updated: 2019-11-28 09:30:16 KST

South and North Korea's table tennis teams played some rare friendly matches against each other this week.
They played in both the men's and women's competitions at the Eastern Champions Cup in Vladivostok, Russia.
The South Korean men beat their northern counterparts 3-to-2 after a more than four-hour-long match.
On Tuesday, the South Korean women lost to the North Koreans by the same scoreline.
Table tennis is a symbolic sport when it comes to inter-Korean exchanges. as a unified team won a major international competition back in 1991.
However, with inter-Korean relations going off the boil in recent months, the players ended their respective matches by shaking hands, but didn't talk to each other.
Two Koreas also agreed to not use the Korean peninsula flag during the competition.
