N. Korea Urges S. Korea to Take Steps to Prevent Military Clashes

North Korea has urged South Korea to take steps to prevent military clashes.
 
The call was made in a statement issued on Wednesday by the North’s delegation to inter-Korean high-level talks.
 
Claiming the South Korean military fired at North Korean soldiers patrolling near the Military Demarcation Line last weekend, the North said it cannot but question the South’s commitment to improving inter-Korean relations.
 
It also threatened that a battle of terminating nature could occur if South Korean civic groups push forward with its plan to send anti-North Korean leaflets across the border on Saturday. The North added that the distribution of such leaflets is an act of war.
 
The North also said that if the South takes responsible steps to block provocations, there would be no reason not to hold another round of high-level inter-Korean talks. 

In response, Seoul has reaffirmed its stance that all inter-Korean issues should be addressed through dialogue. 

A unification ministry official told reporters that the North must stop unilateral claims aimed at justifying its provocative acts and honor the agreement reached at the high-level inter-Korean meeting on October 4.
