The first meeting of the last years will be in the village where they signed the armistice that extends through the heavily armed border between the two countries.
Both sides are scheduled to resume talks to renew the activities in a jointly administered factory and other projects related to both sides of the border.
The authorities of both countries met for the last time in 2011. Since then the animosity prevailed in bilateral relations.
In April, Pyongyang withdrew its 53,000 workers in the Kaesong industrial park, located just north of the border. In May, Seoul withdrew its last personnel from there.
During those months, North Korea threatened South Korea and its allies, United States and Japan with nuclear attacks that alerted the world to a possible serious crisis, a war that at the moment is appeased.
