VANTAA, Finland - Informal talks held in Finland between North Korean, South Korean and U.S. delegates ended on Wednesday, the Finnish foreign ministry said, describing the talks as constructive.
"(The meeting) explored approaches to building confidence and [reducing] tensions in Korean peninsula... The participants had a constructive exchange of views in a positive atmosphere," foreign ministry Director General Kimmo Lahdevirta told reporters, declining to comment on the agenda.
