North Korea has agreed to hold a second round of Red Cross talks with Japan next week in the northern Chinese city of Shenyang.
Japan's public broadcaster NHK reports that both countries will be sending government representatives to the two-day meeting that starts next Wednesday.
They are expected to follow up on progress made in the first round of talks earlier this month, when Pyongyang agreed to cooperate in repatriating the remains of Japanese who died around the end of World War II in what is now North Korea.
There is speculation the Red Cross meetings will lead to formal bilateral talks between the two governments.
