North Korean officials return to DMZ joint liaison office

Seoul (CNN)North Korean officials have returned to a joint liaison office near the demilitarized zone (DMZ) with South Korea, days after they informed Seoul they would be withdrawing from the project, a key symbol of the rapprochement and ongoing peace process between the two countries.

The apparent reversal comes after US President Donald Trump announced he was overruling a decision by his Treasury to impose new sanctions aimed at North Korea.
“It was announced today by the US Treasury that additional large scale Sanctions would be added to those already existing Sanctions on North Korea. I have today ordered the withdrawal of those additional Sanctions!” Trump tweeted on Friday.
