S.Korea and N.Korea held secret military meetings in 2012: leaked document

Details of the meetings remain secret, ROK Defense Ministry refuses to comment

South Korea and North Korea held secret military meetings three times in December 2012, with the details of the meetings still unclear, multiple South Korean media outlets reported on Tuesday evening.

The meetings were apparently held after the South announced that it would completely shut off communication with the North in the aftermath of the sinking of ROK Navy Corvette Cheonan, an incident the South still blames the North for.
