Korean prime ministers meet
by UPI

SEOUL - South and North Korean prime ministers met Wednesday in Seoul to discuss implementing their summit agreements.

South Korean Prime Minister Han Duck-soo and his northern counterpart Kim Yong Il met for the first time in 15 years to discuss ways to put into force the agreements reached at the summit of their presidents to enhance economic and politics ties, the Yonhap news agency reported.

"I am about to hold what will be a historic meeting with you Mr. Prime Minister and I think this meeting will go very well," said Kim, no relation to North Korean leader Kim Jong Il.

Han sounded equally optimistic, noting the summit would have been worthwhile only when the agreements become effective.

Among the deals reached at the summit in Pyongyang in early October, South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun and North Korean leader Kim Jong Il agreed to set up a joint fishing area near the disputed maritime border in the Yellow Sea, the report said. It was in this region that the navies of the two countries fought in 1999 and 2002.

South Korean officials say better relations will also help speed up the denuclearization of North Korea, the report said.
