Pyongyang, Oct 4 (IANS) North Korea has decided to restore all the north-south communication lines starting from Monday, according to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

The report said the decision was announced to follow the promise made by the North Korea's top leader Kim Jong Un in a speech on last Thursday in which he expressed the intention of restoring the cut-off north-south communication lines as part of the effort to realize the expectation and desire of the entire nation who want the north-south relations to be restored, Xinhua news agency reported.

"The South Korean authorities should make positive efforts to put the north-south ties on a right track and settle the important tasks which must be prioritized to open up the bright prospect in the future, bearing deep in mind the meaning of the restoration of communication lines," the KCNA report added.

Inter-Korean relations have remained cold since the summit between the North Korea and the US reached no deal in early 2019.

The inter-Korean hotlines were briefly back in operation in late July, but the North Korea began refusing Seoul's regular calls again two weeks later in protest against the joint military drills by South Korea and the US.
