Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) agreed to hold general-grade military talks later this week at the border village of Panmunjom, Seoul's defense ministry said Monday.
The general-level dialogue would start at 10 a.m. local time (0100 GMT) on October 26 at Tongilgak, a DPRK building in Panmunjom, the ministry said in a statement.
The five-member military delegations from the two sides will discuss the implementation of the inter-Korean military agreement, which was signed by the two countries' defense chiefs during the Pyongyang summit in September.
They will also discuss ways to form a joint military committee, which would consult on military affairs between the two countries.
Under the military agreement signed in Pyongyang, the two sides agreed to stop all hostile acts in border areas by setting up a buffer zone along the heavily-armed inter-Korean border.
