North Korea proposes working-level talks with South Korea

North Korea is proposing working-level meetings with rival South Korea in the North Korean border city of Kaesong on Sunday.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea is proposing working-level meetings with rival South Korea in the North Korean border city of Kaesong on Sunday.

The statement issued by Pyongyang also said it would reopen on Friday a Red Cross communication line that the North shut down in March during high tensions with North Korean threats of war and South Korean counter-threats.

The two countries had agreed Thursday to hold talks on reopening a jointly run factory complex and possibly other issues. The South has proposed government-level talks be held Wednesday.

The easing tension comes ahead of a U.S.-China summit in which the North is expected to be a key topic.
