The Democratic People's Republic of Korea has proposed holding high-level military talks with South Korea, over the investigation into the Cheonan warship sinking.
But the head of the country's delegation to DPRK-US general-level talks has rejected an American proposal to hold DPRK-US discussions over the March incident.
The DPRK, instead, suggested opening North-South high-level military talks to discuss the results of the probe.
One official from Pyongyang says that, if authorities in Seoul respond to the proposal, his side will immediately begin working toward initiating military contacts.
