North and South Korea `agree to talks`
North and South Korea have agreed to resume formal high-level talks that had effectively been suspended since February, reports from South Korea say.

The agreement came during a surprise visit to South Korea by North Korean officials for the closing ceremony of the Asian Games.

The visit was led by two top-ranking North Korean officials, seen as close aides to leader Kim Jong-un.

Both sides were said to have agreed to meet again within the next few weeks.
