Seoul says no plan for new talks with North


SEOUL: South Korea said Monday it had no plans to propose a fresh dialogue with North Korea after rare high-level talks over the weekend fizzled out with no agreement. The deputy ministerial-level talks on ways to improve ties — the first of their kind for nearly two years — ended Saturday night after two days of marathon negotiations, with no agreement and no commitment to meet again. Both sides blamed each other for the deadlock, with Pyongyang accusing Seoul of refusing to discuss “core issues” and the South accusing the North of prioritizing economic projects over humanitarian issues.
