S. Korea Likely to Propose Inter-Korean Military Talks This Week

South Korea is reportedly moving to propose inter-Korean military talks this week to follow up on President Moon Jae-in’s recent offer to stop all acts of hostility on the border.

An official in Seoul said on Sunday that the government is discussing the matter among related ministries in consideration of the North’s first response to Moon’s so-called Berlin proposal.

The ministries of unification and defense are reportedly mulling proposing working-level inter-Korean military talks this week to discuss ways to implement Moon’s proposal.

In his speech on July sixth in Berlin, Moon proposed that the two Koreas stop hostile acts around the Military Demarcation Line (KDL) starting July 27, the date that marks the 64th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice Agreement.

The Seoul government is noting the fact that North Korea said on Saturday in its first response to Moon’s initiative that the first step to improving inter-Korean relations is to end political and military confrontations between the two sides.
