SEOUL -- North and South Korea agreed Thursday to improve two road routes in the North up to international standards, paving the way for further economic cooperation between the two countries.

The two parties agreed to modernize the Route Donghae on the east coast and the Route Gyeongeui in the western interior, by cooperating in design and construction. The Route Gyeongeui will connect Seoul and Pyongyang, via the northern border city of Kaesong, playing a key role in transporting people and improving logistics.
