South Korea says high-level talks with North Korea over how to defuse rising tensions have ended.
In a statement, South Korea's presidential office says the talks ended more than a day after they began at the border village of Panmunjom.
The statement says chief South Korean delegate and presidential security adviser Kim Kwan-jin will announce the results of the discussions shortly.
The talks were the second round of negotiations the rival Koreas began on Saturday after events at their heavily guarded border pushed them to the brink of a possible military confrontation.
