Added On October 17, 2018

South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea have agreed to hold a groundbreaking ceremony in late November or early December to modernize and eventually connect railways and roads across the inter-Korean border.
According to South Korean media, the agreement was reached after high-level discussions held at the Peace House in Panmunjom on Monday.
Before the groundbreaking ceremony, the two Koreas agreed to do a field study on railway routes along the peninsula's west and east corridors.
Detailed schedules for the field study will be fixed later through the exchange of letters.
The senior-level talks were held to discuss ways to implement September's Pyongyang Declaration, signed by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un after their third summit in Pyongyang.
