NK Pro timeline charts the key events from July 1 to July 31
The two Koreas restored key communication hotlines at the end of July, over one year since Pyongyang severed contact in response to anti-Kim regime propaganda leaflet launches from the South in June 2020. This reportedly followed multiple letter exchanges between leaders Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong Un beginning in April this year.
Seoul and Pyongyang may be discussing another summit and building another joint liaison office, according to a report citing unnamed South Korean government sources. But South Korea’s Presidential Blue House stated that this news was “not true” later that same day.
