Icy relations thawing between North and South Korea

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak will meet with a visiting delegation from North Korea, according to the South's state media.

South Korean Unification Minister Hyun In Taek met with North Korean unity leader Kim Yang Gon earlier Saturday in a possible sign that icy relations between the two rival nations are thawing.

The meeting was the first high-level, cross-border contact in nearly two years. And are in stark contrast to the tense public statements they made about each other earlier this year.
