South Korea offers direct talks with the North

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 a media briefing on Monday.

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.

  1. Japan on Monday downplayed South Korea’s offer to hold military talks with North Korea, saying the priority should be piling pressure on Pyongyang through sanctions. “This is not a time for dialogue. This is a time for pressure,” Japan’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Norio Maruyama told reporters in New York where Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida was attending a UN meeting on development. “This is a time to raise pressure in order to conduct a serious dialogue,” said Maruyama. South Korea’s Defense Ministry proposed a meeting to be held Friday at the border truce village of Panmunjom to ease tensions after Pyongyang tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile.
