North and South Korea held high-level talks within the heavily fortified demilitarized zone Monday.

Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon led the five-member South Korean delegation to Panmunjom. The South Korean team was greeted by Ri Son Gwon, chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the country, who headed the North™s contingent.

At Monday's session the two nations agreed to begin a joint project to modernize and connect their rail and roadways before the end of the year.

Furthermore, they agreed to hold Red Cross talks at the North™s Mount Kumgang Resort in November related to families separated from the Korean War.

North and South Korean leaders agreed in September during the third inter-Korean summit to intensify cross-border cooperation and to promote various programs to bring about an era of peace on the peninsula and one without nuclear weapons.
