Pyongyang, February 1 (KCNA) -- The chairman of the Central Committee of the Red Cross Society of the DPRK sent a message to the president of the south Korean Red Cross on Tuesday.

The message said that the DPRK proposed north-south dialogue including the authorities' talks in the joint statement of the government, political parties and organizations, a statement of the spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea and an appeal of the Central Committee of the Democratic Front for the Reunification of Korea. There is neither reason nor conditions for the Red Cross organizations of both sides to fail to sit at a negotiating table now that the north-south high-level military talks are to open thanks to the magnanimous and positive proposal made by the Korean People's Army, the message added.

Expressing regret at the south Korean Red Cross for having not yet responded to the DPRK's proposal for holding the Red Cross talks in Munsan on Feb. 1, the message called for discussing the date of talks again and opening them at the earliest possible date.

It expressed expectation that the south Korean Red Cross would seek the earliest negotiated settlement of humanitarian issues between the north and the south in response to the compatriotic decision made by the DPRK and measures taken by it out of good faith so as to ensure the restart of reunion of separated families and relatives from upcoming spring.
