SEOUL/PANMUNJOM, Oct. 15 (Joint Press Corps-Yonhap) -- The two Koreas agreed Monday to start a joint project to modernize and eventually connect their railways and roads across their borders in late November or early December.

They also agreed to hold Red Cross talks in November to discuss issues related to families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War and arrange a general-level military meeting "as soon as possible."

The agreements were reached during high-level talks at the truce village of Panmunjom between South Korean Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon and his North Korean counterpart, Ri Son-gwon.
