SEOUL, Nov. 12 (Yonhap) -- Military officials from South and North Korea and the United Nations Command (UNC) opened another round of working-level consultations Monday on disarming the truce village of Panmunjom inside the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the Ministry of National Defense said.
The trilateral session at the Freedom House located on the southern side of Panmunjom is meant to focus on the operation of surveillance equipment at the Joint Security Area (JSA) along the inter-Korean border.
The three sides have turned Panmunjom into a firearm-free zone under the comprehensive military agreement between the two Koreas signed in September during their summit talks in Pyongyang.
"In the working-level council meeting, (the three sides) will discuss the issue of adjusting surveillance equipment for disarming the JSA and ways to share information," the ministry said.
Following the talks, they plan to conduct a joint on-site survey on related devices until Tuesday, it added.
