North Korean and U.S.-led United Nations Command officers overseeing the Korean War truce will meet on July 13 in the first meeting involving Pyongyang to discuss the sinking of a South Korean warship.
The UN Command said the meeting will take place at the Panmunjom truce village that straddles the military border between the two Koreas at 1:00 on July 13.
An international team of investigators blamed the North for launching a torpedo attack on the South Korean corvette Cheonan in March, killing 46 sailors.
The UN Security Council in a statement on July 9 condemned the attack but did not explicitly blame the North.
North Korea denies it was involved in the sinking.
