Army Col. Cho Yong-geun led South Korea's three-member delegation, while the North's side was led by Col. Om Chang-nam.
"U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on September 13 said Russian Federation pressured the independent sanctions monitors to amend a report that was eventually submitted to the Security Council's North Korea sanctions committee last month" the news agency reads.
The wave of optimism that surrounded the first two inter-Korean summits in April and May and the Singapore meeting between Trump and Kim in June conveniently overlooked disagreements about what exactly Kim had committed to.
South Korea launched its first ever missile-capable attack submarine on 14 September, despite a recent diplomatic thaw with the nuclear-armed North. Seoul's defense ministry had said in August the pursuit of denuclearization and a "peaceful settlement on the Korean Peninsula" would take place through peace through force while increasing the defense budget by 8.2 percent in the next fiscal year.
"This liaison office is another symbol of peace jointly created by the South and the North".
North Korea, meanwhile, did not display intercontinental ballistic missiles that can target the United States at Sunday's military parade, signaling Kim's desire to refrain from provoking Trump to resume talks with Washington.
The Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice, not a peace treaty, and both sides remain technically at war. "The process can't have anything to do with a plan to denuclearize unilaterally".

"I hope South and North Korean authorities and experts can discuss a variety of discussions in the field of railways, roads, forestry, and other issues, and push forward joint research on the implementation of the October 4 Declaration and new economic initiatives".
But Kim has never made similar comments publicly or in writing.
Thursday, South Korea's special adviser to the president for unification, foreign affairs and national security, Moon Chung-in, told reporters he personally believes the correct context in which to view the meeting is as an extension of the April 27 summit, which resulted in the Panmunjom Declaration.
That would provide a starting point for establishing a timeline for denuclearization, reduce concerns over North Korea's intent and make it clearer that the North bears the greater responsibility in the efforts to resolve the nuclear crisis, Cha said.
The two Koreas are discussing joint projects in forestry and historical architectural restoration, which a source familiar with cross-border affairs called "low-impact, easy to do projects" which would not breach sanctions, but which would build trust and confidence between the estranged sides.
