PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA - The conflict between North Korea and South Korea kind of seems like a sitcom about neighbors who can't get along, except for that whole looming-threat-of-nuclear-war thing. But good news: they seem to have settled their latest spat.

It all started earlier this month when a landmine injured two Southern soldiers on the border. In response, Seoul started blasting propaganda on giant speakers. Pyongyang then began moving troops and military equipment toward the border, spurring a meeting of negotiators from both sides.

After three days of talks, the South promised to "stop all loudspeaker propaganda broadcasts" and "the North side expressed regret over the recent mine explosion" and even agreed to allow reunions of separated families.

The two add they'll meet soon to improve ties, but we all know it's only a matter of time before they're on the bring of war again.
