North Korea announces agreement with South

World Bulletin / News Desk

After three days of intense negotiations North and South Korea produced an agreement early Tuesday (late Monday GMT) on defusing tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Yonhap news agency quoted Kim Kwan-jin, South Korean President Park Geun-hye's national security adviser, as saying that North Korea had expressed regret over a landmine explosion on the two countries’ shared border in which two South Korean soldiers were injured.

The deal came after the president had warned that the South would continue the propaganda broadcasts the North considers insulting to its leader unless it offered a clear apology and promised not to stage any more provocations.

Kim said that the South had agreed to stop the anti-Pyongyang broadcasts providing there were no more "abnormal situations" on the peninsula.
