SEOUL (AFP) - North and South Korea will hold a second round of high-level talks on Friday, the South's Unification Ministry said, as they seek to resolve a row over looming South Korea-US military drills.

The meeting will again be held at the border truce village of Panmunjom with the same vice minister-level delegations that participated in a first round of talks on Wednesday.

They mark the highest-level sit-down between the two rivals since 2007.

Wednesday's discussions ran late into the night, but ended without any tangible agreement or joint statement.
