Two Koreas skip director-level talks for ninth week at liaison office: MOU
Seoul also plans to hold an event marking the first anniversary of the Panmunjom Declaration

The two Koreas skipped a senior-level weekly meeting for the ninth consecutive week, South Korea's Ministry of Unification (MOU) said on Friday, even though directors of both countries are reportedly on duty at the inter-Korean liaison office.

North Korea's director at the office, Jon Jong Su, informed the South Korean side in advance that he would not be able to attend the weekly meeting, deputy MOU spokesperson Lee Eu-gene told a press briefing.
