Koreas agree to conduct joint study on railway cooperation

PANMUNJOM, South and North Korea agreed Tuesday to conduct a joint study on modernizing the railways that run through their borders "at an early date."

The joint study will start first on the northern part of the Seoul-Sinuiju western railways from July 24 and then on the railways running along the eastern region of the Korean Peninsula, according to the unification ministry.

The agreements were reached after the two Koreas held working-level talks on the southern side of the truce village of Panmunjom to discuss railway cooperation in a follow-up on the summit between their leaders in April.
