TOKYO (Sputnik) - North and South Korea have fully restored their military communication line, which includes a telephone and fax machine, as part of the two states' efforts to boost bilateral ties, as agreed at an inter-Korean summit in April, the South Korean Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

According to the ministry, the eastern communication line that was completely severed in wildfires in 2010 has been restored.

The communication line on the west coast was restored on July 16.
