PYONGYANG - The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Friday proposed working-level talks with the Republic of Korea, the official KCNA news agency reported.

The proposal for talks on Thursday at Thongil House on the north side of the truce village of Panmunjom was sent by the secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea (CPRK) to the ROK's Unification Ministry, according to the KCNA.

Seoul has blamed Pyongyang for not responding to its repeated calls for inter-governmental talks. The CPRK on Wednesday denied the charge and urged Seoul to drop hostility against Pyongyang. A CPRK spokesman has accused Seoul of impure intentions to shift responsibility of failure to launch North-South talks to Pyongyang.

In an agreement concluded after the armed border conflicts in August, both Koreas agreed to hold inter-governmental talks at earliest date possible in a bid to improve ties.
