Wednesday Inter-Korean Talks Cancelled

Tomorrow’s inter-Korean talks have been cancelled after the two sides were unable to reach agreement on the composition of their respective delegations.

The two sides exchanged lists of five named delegation members by phone earlier at lunchtime, but North Korea reportedly raised objections and refused to accept the South Korean list.

The talks had been due to take place over two days in Seoul. It is unclear whether Thursday’s talks have also been cancelled.
