TOKYO, December 29. /TASS/. South Korea has officially proposed to North Korea (DPRK) to hold bilateral intergovernmental negotiations in January 2015, South Korean Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae said at a news conference in Seoul on Monday.
“The South and the North will have to meet each other and discuss ways towards peaceful reunification,” Ryoo said. According to him, his government sent a fax message to the North offering dialogue in January on pending inter-Korean issues. The main subjects for discussion at the talks are expected to be the reunion of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War, as well as strengthening inter-Korean cooperation in the cultural and sports areas.
The previous negotiations between the South Korean and North Korea officials were held in South Korea’s city of Incheon in early October. After that Seoul proposed to Pyongyang to hold a new round of talks in late December, but the North Korean side rejected this proposal due to an incident with launching by South Koreans of balloons carrying anti-Pyongyang leaflets, across the border. Pyongyang has repeatedly pressed Seoul to stop the activists who launch such balloons and threatened to shell the launch sites.
