The Republic of Korea (ROK) and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) kicked off a senior-level, inter-governmental dialogue on Jan 9, 2018 in the truce village of Panmunjom.

The DPRK offered to send a high-ranking delegation as well as athletes and cheering squads to the ROK-hosted Winter Olympics, heralding a thaw in inter-Korean relations.

The two sides exchanged views on each other's needs during the plenary session for the first inter-Korean talks in around two years.

As DPRK and ROK make positive moves to smoothen relations, let’s take a look at some key moments between the two countries in the past 50 years.
