S.Korea Proposes Military Talks With N.Korea On July 21

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 Defence Minister said, after a series of Missile Tests by the North in recent Weeks.

Vice Defence Minister Suh Choo-Suk told a news briefing that the South had asked Pyongyang to restore Militarn Communication Lines as a response to the Proposal.

The Proposed talks would be at Tongilgak, a North Korean building at Panmunjom used for previous talks. The last government-level talks were held in December 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 Programmes.
