Several top level North and South Korean diplomats have had a marathon session of talks on Monday, but there are no signs of the military standoff between the two countries ending anytime soon. The standoff might lead to armed conflict soon, and the diplomats are furthering talks to avoid such a situation.
The negotiations lasted over 10 hours, and the negotiations are being held in the village of Panmunjom, which is where the truce of the Korean War in 1950-1953 was signed. The ceasefire in the Korean War was due to successful negotiations, but it seems the current negotiations will not lead to positive results.
There have already been two sessions of 9 hours and 10 hours respectively. The matters are being delayed as South Korea feels North Korea is trying to influence the negotiations to a great extent. North Korea has already doubled the military forces deployed at the borders, and a war between the two nations is becoming likely if the negotiations are not successful.
