South Korea delays military talks with North
Seoul, Jul 7: South Korea turned down a North Korean request to hold military talks, saying it would not be appropriate now to have the discussions, a Defence Ministry official said today.
North Korea made the offer to hold the talks this week, before launching a series of missiles on Wednesday. ''It's not rejecting the offer but delaying the talks,'' the official said.
South Korean officials have said they will have to reconsider cooperation with the North after Pyongyang shot off the missiles earlier this week.
