Seoul Calls for Pyongyang to Respond to Overture for Talks

Thursday, 20 July 2017 10:38 PM

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea has urged North Korea to accept its offers for talks as Pyongyang continues to ignore Seoul's proposal for a military meeting to ease animosities along their tense border.

South Korea's Defense Ministry said it has become difficult to hold the meeting Seoul had originally proposed for Friday and called for the North to "quickly accept" the overture for talks.

North Korea has yet to officially respond to South Korea's proposal to hold the military meeting and a separate meeting next month to resume the temporary reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.

Some experts believe the North is taking its time mulling its options and could potentially make a counter-proposal seeking more concessions from the South in exchange for opening dialogue.
