SEOUL, May 24 -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) offered again to South Korea holding a working-level contact for inter-governmental military talks, Seoul's defense ministry said Tuesday.
A South Korean defense ministry official told Xinhua via phone that the DPRK sent a notice at about 5:40 p.m. (0840 GMT) through the western military hotline in the name of the Ministry of the People's Armed Forces under the National Defense Commission.
The Tuesday notice repeated what Pyongyang demanded through a notice, sent on May 21 by the DPRK's defense ministry to propose a working-level contact for inter-governmental military talks at a convenient venue and date for both sides between late May and early June to defuse military tensions on the peninsula.
