The two Koreas held their regular phone call this morning, the second day that the inter-Korean hotlines have been back up and running.
Seoul's unification ministry said Tuesday that the call took place at 9 AM through a separate channel at the joint liaison office.
Seoul and Pyeongyang do two phone calls a day one at 9 AM and another at 5 PM.
The defense ministry also confirmed that all military hotlines between the South and the North are back on, including the navy channel set up on an international network for merchant ships, which the North had not answered the day before.
Inter-Korean communication lines were restored as of Monday morning, 55 days after the regime stopped answering calls in August, objecting to the South Korea-U.S. joint military drills.
