South Korea proposes military talks with North Korea on Jul 21

SEOUL: South Korea proposed military talks with North Korea, the first since 2015, and a halt to hostile activities near the inter-Korean border, the South's vice defense minister said on Monday (Jul 17), after a series of missile tests by the North in recent weeks. "We request military talks with the North on Jul 21 at Tongilgak to stop all hostile activities that raise military tension at the military demarcation line," Vice Defence Minister Suh Choo-suk told a media briefing. Tongilgak is a North Korean building at Panmunjom used for previous talks. The last government-level talks were held in Dec 2015. The proposal came roughly a week after President Moon Jae-in said the need for dialogue with North Korea was more pressing than ever to curb Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.
