Koreas agree to restore military hotline: Seoul official

SEOUL, Jan 9, 2018 (BSS/AFP) - North and South Korea agreed Tuesday to restore a military hotline, an official said, less than a week after an civilian cross-border phone link was reopened.

The North said during the rivals' first formal talks in more than two years that a link in the western part of the border had been put back into action, the South's vice unification minister Chun Hae-Sung told reporters in Seoul.

"Accordingly, our side decided to start using the military telephone line, starting 8am tomorrow."
