The opening is scheduled for Friday, September 14, 218. Such called “office of communications” will situate on the territory of North Korea. For the first time since the Korean War in 1950-1953, South Korean officials will be permanently placed on the south of the peninsula.
The staff of the office will consist of 20 South Korean civil servants, and North Korean with a little less number. They will work on the organization of joint projects, which were agreed by Leader of DPRK Kim Jong-un and President of South Korea Moon Jae-in at the April summit.
‘The communication office will be a 24-hour consulting and communication channel for promoting inter-Korean relations, to lower military tensions and peace on the Korean Peninsula and establish peace on the Korean Peninsula,’ the Ministry of Unification claims.
Earlier the leaders of two Koreas had a historic meeting in Panmunjom, South Korea. After the talks, the leaders of the states announced the signing of a treaty of peace at the end of 2018, which will end the war between the states which officially lasts since 1953.
The leaders of the states have signed the Panmunjom Declaration for peace, prosperity and unity in the Korean Peninsula.
Later, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea canceled the new meeting with South Korea authorities. The reason he did so was the fact that North Korea was displeased with military training conducted by the U.S. and South Korea. Later, Kim Jong-Un assembled the party’s military commission or the first time in two years.
