SEOUL, South Korea – South Korean media are reporting senior military officers from the rival Koreas are meeting at a border village for talks on how to ease cross-border animosities.
The two Koreas traded gunfire Friday after South Korean activists floated propaganda balloons across the border. Earlier in the week, their navies exchanged warning shots along the disputed sea boundary. There were no reports of casualties from either incident.
Yonhap news agency is citing unidentified government and ruling party sources as saying Wednesday's talks are expected to focus on the latest shootings.
Opposition lawmaker Park Jie-won says the talks were to start at 10 a.m. at the border village of Panmunjom.
Seoul's Defense Ministry and Unification Ministry couldn't immediately confirm the report.
