Two Koreas, UN Hold Talks to Disarm Heavily Fortified BorderSouth Korea’s defense ministry said the meeting at the border village of Panmunjom will focus on landmine removal operations that the two Koreas began undertaking this month and discuss details of disarming and reducing the number of guards at the Joint Security Area. South Korea President Moon Jae-in touted the military pact as a meaningful move to reduce conventional military threats. The meeting comes as the U.S. expressed discontent with South Korea for moving forward with the plans without consulting U.S. officials, who fear such inter-Korea pacts could undermine nuclear disarmament talks with North Korea.
