North, South Korea Launch Joint Liaison Office, All-Hours Communications

SEOUL – North and South Korea inaugurated on Friday a joint liaison office on the northern side of their shared border as an all-hours channel of communication, Seoul’s unification ministry said.

“From today, South and North Korea can have direct consultations 24 hours a day and 365 days a year over issues relating to advances in inter-Korean relations, peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula,” said South Korea’s Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon, local news agency Yonhap reported.

The opening of the new office, which “is a channel for round-the-clock communication in the new era of peace,” according to Cho, is one of the measures agreed in the first summit held in April between the leaders of the countries, who promised to work to improve bilateral relations.

The office is located in the inter-Korean Kaesong industrial complex which Seoul shut down two years ago over the North’s missile tests, and which will now serve as the headquarters for the development of projects of joint economic cooperation.

Around South Korean 20 officials will work in the new liaison office and North Korea will assign 15-20 personnel, while the heads of the office from both countries will meet every week.

The inauguration comes four days before the summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang.
