South Korean Foreign Minister
Kim Sung Hwan on Saturday met briefly with his North Korean counterpart, Pak Ui Chun, dpa quoted South Korea's Yonhap News Agency as reporting.
The meeting came a day after the chief nuclear envoys from the two countries met for the first time since 2008 and agreed to try to resume talks involving China, Japan, the United States and Russia on ending the North's nuclear programme.
Saturday's encounter took place on the Indonesian resort island of Bali before the start of the ASEAN Regional Forum, the Asia-Pacific's largest security gathering, Yonhap said, quoting an unnamed South Korean official.
The meeting was the first between foreign ministers of the two Koreas since July 2008.
