NKorea proposes talks with US over ship sinking

The Norks have lost it , they don't want to talk now they want to talk .

but what ya gonna do ?

We have to suffer through These endless rounds of Diplomacy , for some reason !

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea on Friday proposed military talks with the United States next week to discuss the sinking of a South Korean warship which Washington blames on the North.

The proposal was made ahead of the U.N. Security Council's approval Friday of a statement that condemned the sinking of the warship Cheonan, without directly blaming the North.

An international investigation concluded in May that North Korea torpedoed the vessel near the tense Korean sea border, killing 46 sailors. The North vehemently denies the accusations and has warned any punishment would trigger war.

Late last month, the American-led U.N. Command, which oversees an armistice that ended the Korean War in 1953, proposed general-level talks with North Korea to discuss the warship sinking. The North, however, rejected the offer, urging Washington not to interfere in inter-Korean affairs under the name of the U.N.
