SEOUL, July 13 (Xinhua) -- Talks between the U.S.-led United Nations Command (UNC) in South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), originally slated for Tuesday, got canceled at the request of the DPRK, the UNC said.
The talks are now put on hold, and it is yet to be known when exactly they would decide to meet again, according to Yonhap News Agency.
The two sides had planned to hold a working-level military meeting at 10 a.m. local time at the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone to discuss the sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on Pyongyang's torpedo attack.
The meeting was first proposed by the UNC, and the DPRK accepted it last Friday, according to news reports.
The latest round of working-level meeting between the two sides was held in March 2009.
