South Korea's Unification Ministry says the DPRK has suggested holding Working-Level Talks on suspended cross-border tours next week.

In a message delivered to the Ministry on Thursday, the DPRK proposed holding the meeting on November 19th, to discuss resuming a series of tours at a mountain resort. The program was indefinitely suspended after a South Korean tourist was shot dead there in July, 2008. Seoul has refused to re-open the tours, unless Pyongyang allows an investigation into the fatal shooting, and draws up new safety measures.

In response, Pyongyang seized South Korean properties at the resort. The South Korean Unification Ministry says authorities are currently reviewing the suggestion.
