South Korea offers military talks with North Korea

South Korea offers military talks with North Korea”

North and South Korea remain technically at war since the 1953, when an armistice agreement ended the war but no truce was signed.

He did not specify agenda items or say who would participate in the talks. Given the "comprehensive" nature of the talks, the headstrong regime may also bring up South Korea-US joint military drills, the dispatch of US strategic assets, the deployment of the US' Terminal High Altitude Area Defense here, and other issues from which Seoul could not budge. -South Korean war games.

South Korea has offered to have military talks with North Korea in order to ease tension across their border and resume the reunion of families separated by their war in the 1950s.

Officials of the Korean Red Cross receive phone calls at their headquarters in Jung District, Seoul, on Monday after the South Korean agency proposed inter-Korean talks on materializing separated family reunion sessions.

Moon said in his Berlin speech that he hoped to hold family reunions and visits to ancestral graves in the North on October 4, to mark the 10th anniversary of the October 4 Declaration and Chuseok, a national holiday in both Koreas. The Unification Ministry said it has about 130,000 South Korean applicants for such meetings on file, but only 60,000 of those are alive. Seoul began blaring anti-Pyongyang broadcasts and K-Pop songs via border loudspeakers, and Pyongyang responded with its own border broadcasts and launches of balloons carrying anti-South leaflets.

Seoul's Unification Ministry says these latest proposals are in line with President Moon Jae-in's dual track policy to pursue both engagement with the Kim Jong Un government while also supporting US led sanctions to pressure Pyongyang to halt its nuclear and ballistic missiles programs.

"What is important is to stop the flow of currency to North Korea" said Maruyama.

Ms. Ahn said she suspected that the government of the former president Park Geun-hye, a conservative who was impeached over a corruption scandal and removed from office in March, had put her on a blacklist for helping organize the Women Cross DMZ campaign in May 2015.

Moon, the South's first liberal leader in a decade, believes dialogue should be used to help build trust, as stated in his Berlin address early this month.

Seoul has dismissed the claims, saying it has already verified the 12 waitresses' intentions to stay here, and Kim Ryon-hui had already become a South Korean and therefore is mandated to secure government approval to visit the North, with the only possibility for a temporary stay.

The dialogue was created to hold a reunion event of families, who have been separated since the 1950-1953 Korean War ended in armistice, on the occasion of the Chuseok holiday in early October. "We also hope that the global community will understand and support constructive efforts of both parties".
