North Korea and South Korea were at odds Wednesday over how to carry out their plan to create a joint fishing zone around their disputed sea border, as they entered a second day of rare defense talks in the North's capital. The frontier was expected to be the main sticking point at the meetings in Pyongyang between South Korean Defense Minister Kim Jang-soo and his North Korean counterpart Kim Il Chol. The talks that run through Thursday - the second-ever meeting between defense chiefs of the Koreas, which remain technically at war - are aimed at fleshing out agreements struck at a summit between the two Koreas last month. At that meeting, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun agreed to establish a joint fishing ground off the divided peninsula's west coast to resolve a long-running row over the sea border.
