On Friday March 22, 2019 it was announced that North Korea pulled out of the Kaesong liaison office which was formed in September 2018 to establish a closer working relationship between North Korea and South Korea.  The office was originally intended to be staffed with 20 representatives from each country.

However, on the following Monday staff from North Korea returned to the office after President Trump declared he would not impose additional sanctions on North Korea because of their nuclear weapons program.
