Korea Is Considering The End Of Military Standoff
Several top-level North and South Korean diplomats have had a marathon session of talks on Monday, but there is no sign of a military standoff between the two countries. The standoff might lead to armed conflict soon, and the diplomats are furthering talks to avoid such a situation.
The negotiations lasted over 10 hours, and the talks were being held in the village of Panmunjom. The truce of the Korean War was signed in 1950-1953. The ceasefire in the Korean War was due to successful negotiations, but it looks like the current negotiations will not lead to positive results anytime soon.
There have already been two sessions of 9 hours and 10 hours, respectively. South Korea feels North Korea is trying to influence the negotiations greatly. North Korea has already doubled the military forces deployed at the borders, and a war between the two nations is becoming likely if the talks are not successful.
