South Korea Proposes Military Negotiation with North Korea

Seoul(July 17, 2017): South Korea has offered to talk with North Korea to ease animosities along their tense border and resume reunions of families separated by their war in the 1950s.

“We request 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 Vice Defence Minister Suh Choo-suk told.

Seoul’s proposal for two sets of talks indicates new President Moon Jae-in is pushing to improve ties with Pyongyang, despite the North’s first intercontinental ballistic missile test earlier this month.
