North and South Korea held talks on connecting the railways that run across their border, a physical link that would transform the relationship between the two sides of the divided peninsula.
The discussions, the first on the issue for 10 years, took place in the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone.
A rail line already exists from Seoul to Pyongyang and on to Sinuiju on the Chinese border, originally built by Japan in the early 20th century, long before the Korean War and decades of division.
