PANMUNJOM, Korean Peninsula – Delegates from North and South Korea met in Panmunjom on Tuesday to discuss Pyongyang’s possible involvement in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

The talks were also used to find ways to improve ties.

Both delegations arrived in Panmunjom and were led to Peace House in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) for the talks.

The United States attempted to prevent the talks from occurring by stating that any talks with North Korea can only occur if they halt their nuclear program. However, in a rare move of independence, Seoul ignored Washington’s demands and decided to talk with their northern neighbor anyway.
