Commander Says US Ready for Military Ops Against N.Korea

Kenny Thornton | 17 July, 2017, 20:27

South Korea's Vice Defence Minister Suh Choo-suk said the talks could be held on 21 July at Tongilgak, a North Korean building in the Panmunjom compound in the demilitarised zone.

"I ask the North to answer to our proposal by restoring the now disconnected military hotline near the West Sea", he said at a news conference.

"(The initiative) is riddled with sophistries like sleep talking, which only pose hurdles rather than helping improve North-South relations" the piece said.

During his speech in Berlin on July 6, Moon laid out his vision for bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula, including a proposal to mutually halt acts of hostility along their tense border as of the July 27 anniversary of the armistice treaty that ended the three-year Korean War in 1953.

The government of President Moon Jae-in also made a separate proposal on reopening Red Cross talks to discuss ways to hold reunions of families separated by the Korean War in October. The dialogue was suspended by increased cross-border tension following the North's missile and nuclear activities.

If North Korea accepts the South's offer for the military talks, it would be the first official governmental talks between the two Koreas since vice ministerial talks were held in December 2015.

The government is likely North Korea's largest user of fuel products, but most petrol and diesel bought by ordinary citizens comes from private dealers and smugglers, experts say.

The request to hold talks is the first such formal overture by the new South Korean administration.

While in office, Ms. Park, who took a hard line on North Korea and its nuclear weapons program, had prevented South Korean nongovernmental organizations from making contact with the North.

Who is Moon Jae-in, South Korea's new president?

Seoul offered the talks on humanitarian issues to be held on August 1 in the Peace House, a building in the South Korean side of Panmunjom.

The military demarcation line is the border that bisects the two Koreas.

The ministry did not explicitly specify what "all hostile activities" includes, and the definition varies between the two Koreas. Seoul however says the group-12 waitresses and a restaurant manager- had defected to the South past year.

Al Jazeera's Kathy Novak, reporting from Seoul, said family separation is seen as a "very pressing and emotional humanitarian issue", - particularly in South Korea.

North Korea, which has conducted five nuclear tests since 2006, including two since the beginning of 2016, was successful on July 4, his first shot of missile intercontinental.

Pyongyang also has in the past tied the idea of resuming family reunions to Seoul's return of North Korean defectors.

The latest ICBM test - which Kim described as a "gift" to the Americans - was seen as a milestone in Pyongyang's quest to build a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead that can hit the United States mainland.
