Officials from North and South Korea are meeting for rare talks aimed at improving long-strained ties, after a military stand-off in August.

The meeting is taking place at the truce village of Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone.

Tension between the two sides ramped up in August when a border blast injured two South Korean soldiers.

Meetings at that time eventually led to the two countries stepping away from a military confrontation. The two sides are expected to discuss details such as the timing and agenda of higher-level talks, reportedly.
