SOUTH KOREA OFFERS TO HOLD TALKS WITH NORTH TO EASE TENSION ALONG COMMON BORDER

South Korea has offered to hold talks with North Korea to ease animosities along their tense border and resume reunions of families separated by their war in the 1950s.

South Korea’s vice defence minister, SUH CHOO-SUK, told a media briefing on Monday that the South had requested military talks with the North on July 21 at Tongilgak to stop all hostile activities that raise military tension at the military demarcation line.

South Korea’s proposal for two sets of talks indicates new President MOON JAE-IN is pushing to improve ties with North Korea, despite the North’s first intercontinental ballistic missile test earlier this month.

Tongilgak is a North Korean building at the Panmunjom truce village on the border used for previous inter-Korea talks.
