Deal reached easing North and South Korea tensions

North and South Korea reached a deal Tuesday to ease animosities, with Pyongyang expressing regret over a recent land mine blast and Seoul agreeing to halt propaganda broadcasts that had pushed the rivals to threats of war. During two rounds of marathon talks that began Saturday at the border village of Panmunjom, the Koreas agreed on a set of steps aimed at easing tension, with Pyongyang agreeing to lift a “quasi-state of war” that it had declared last week, according to South Korea’s presidential office and North Korea’s state media. The countries also agreed to resume in September reunions of families separated by the war and to hold further talks soon in either Seoul or Pyongyang, both sides said.
