South and North Korea have agreed to hold official military talks, officials from the two countries announced Tuesday in a rare joint statement. Such talks would mark the first time the two Koreas have engaged in any such dialogue in more than two years. Earlier Tuesday, North Korea announced during a formal discussion with its southern neighbor that it would send a delegation to the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. The South agreed to temporarily suspend sanctions against North Korean officials visiting their country in order for the visit to happen.
