North and South Korea have restored their cross-border hotline, the government in Seoul said on Monday, with officials exchanging their first phone call since August.

The move comes just days after Pyongyang sparked international concern with a series of missile tests in the span of a few weeks, prompting an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.

N Korea’s Kim offers to restore inter-Korean hotline, slams US (Al Jazeera)

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has said that he is willing to restore severed inter-Korean hotlines by early October but accused the United States of proposing talks without changing its “hostile policy” to the country, state media reported.

Kim made the remarks on Wednesday on the second day of the Supreme People’s Assembly, the North’s rubber-stamp parliament, which is gathering to discuss the country’s political, economic and social agenda.
