SEOUL, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) wrapped up talks between high- ranking officials after a three-hour meeting, Seoul's Unification Ministry said Friday.

Delegates from the two Koreas met around 10 a.m. local time at the border village of Panmunjeom to resume the senior-level talks, two days after the first round of such dialogue ended without any tangible agreement.
