North Korea has announced it will restore severed inter-Korean hotlines starting Monday, but urged South Korea to step up efforts to improve relations, Reuters reported on Sunday citing state media KCNA. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un expressed his willingness last week to reactivate the hotlines, which North Korea cut off in early August in protest against joint South Korea-US military exercises, just days after reopening them for the first time in a year. The official KCNA news agency said the lines will be reconnected on Monday at 9:00 a.m. local time, but also called for Seoul to fulfil its “tasks” to recover strained cross-border ties. South Korea's unification ministry later confirmed that the hotlines were restored and that officials from both Koreas exchanged their first phone call since August.
