[ News, Nation, October 8 2007] Two Koreas to hold regular scientific cooperation meetings: official

South and North Korea agreed to hold regular working-level meetings to promote science and technology exchanges, a senior government official said Monday (Oct. 8).


He said that while details will have to be worked out, once talks get underway, the two sides could discuss building a technology cooperation center in North Korea that can better regulate exchanges. Kim said the North wants South Korea to build a technology cooperation center in the communist country.

He said discussions can also take place to arrange the exchange of graduate students and scientists, and to provide North Korea with scientific materials and testing equipment.

Regular talks, in addition, could help expand the exchange of weather and seismic activity-related information that can benefit both sides.
