South and North Korea agreed to hold top level talks on Saturday as a North Korean deadline loomed for Seoul to halt loudspeaker propaganda broadcasts across the border or face military action. Four high-ranking officials will meet at the border truce village of Panmunjon at 6:00pm (0900GMT), a spokeswoman for the Presidential Blue House in Seoul told AFP. The agreement over the dialogue came just hours before the North’s ultimatum on the cross border broadcasts expires at 5:00pm Pyongyang time (0830GMT). The South side will be represented by Unification Minister Hong Young-Pyo and the head of the National Security Office Kim Kwan-Jin. The North will send it’s military’s top political official, Hwang Pyong-So, who is widely seen as leader Kin Jong-un’s number two, and Workers Party Secretary Kim Yong-Gon, who is in charge of relations with the South.
