S. Korea’s Park urges N. Korea to accept talks offer


SEOUL: South Korean President Park Geun-Hye on Friday urged North Korea to accept Seoul’s offer for high-level talks, while condemning a recent series of “intolerable” rocket launches by the nuclear-armed neighbor. Seoul had proposed holding talks on August 19 to discuss family reunions for those separated by the 1950-53 Korean War and other issues of “mutual interest.” Pyongyang has yet to respond, but has continued a string of rocket tests—most recently on Thursday when Pope Francis arrived in Seoul for a five-day visit.
