New Delhi, July 19 (ANI): A North Korean newspaper -- Rodong Sinmun-has urged the United States to sincerely respond to the peace agreement proposed by Pyongyang in a commentary published on Monday.

"The Armistice Agreement which had already been reduced to a dead paper provides the U.S. with conditions for starting a war on the peninsula any time," said the commentary.

It also proposed that a peace treaty replace the agreement as early as possible "to establish a solid peace-keeping regime on the peninsula."

"In order to bring the process for the denuclearization on the peninsula back on a normal track, it is necessary to pay primary attention to building confidence between the DPRK and the U.S.," Xinhua quoted the commentary, as adding. (ANI)
