North Korea, South Korea Engage in Marathon Talks

Ryan McVay/Digital Vision/Thinkstock(SEOUL, South Korea) -- Delegates from North and South Korea held marathon preparatory talks at Panmunjom on Sunday, after months of tension between the nations.

The talks, which occurred along the heavily-armed border of the two countries, were initiated with the hopes of setting ground rules for higher-level discussions. According to BBC News, the talks went smoothly, with no arguments.

South Korea had invited the North to engage in high-level discussion at Seoul, but the two sides decided to lower-level conversation first. The meeting between officials from the two sides was the first in over two years.
