South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) resumed high-level talks on Monday in the DPRK for the first time in 10 months, South Korea's Yonhap news agency reported.

Officials from both sides started their two-day meeting in the DPRK border city of Kaesong Monday morning.

Prior to the talks, South Korean officials said they hoped to use the meeting to further develop inter-Korean relations, according to Yonhap.

"I hope that the talks could serve as an occasion to further develop inter-Korean relations by a notch," South Korea's chief delegate and Vice Unification Minister, Rhee Bong-jo, was quoted by Yonhap as telling DPRK delegates before the start of the meeting.
