SEOUL - The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) cannot help stationing its troops in Kaesong if the ongoing working-level talks with the Republic of Korea(ROK) fail, Pyongyang's top delegate said Thursday.

"Talks are in danger of breakdown," Park Chol-su, the DPRK's top negotiator, told ROK reporters in Kaesong. "If the fate of the Kaesong industrial zone is shattered in this way, military camps cannot help being restored (in Kaesong)."

Park suddenly visited the ROK's pressroom in Kaesong without notice to make such comments, according to YTN and Yonhap News Agency.

The DPRK delegation handed out to ROK's reporters the copies of its draft agreement that it proposed during the talks.
