North Korea agrees to talks after U.S., South Korea postpone military drillsBy Christine Kim SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korea agreed on Friday to hold official talks with South Korea next week, the first in more than two years, hours after Washington and Seoul delayed a military exercise amid a standoff over the North’s nuclear and missile programs. South Korea said the North had sent its consent for the talks to be held on Tuesday. The meeting will take place at the border truce village of Panmunjom where officials from both sides are expected to discuss the Winter Olympics, to be held in the South next month, and inter-Korean relations, South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun told reporters.
