North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un speaking at the Workers Party Congress in Pyongyang in MayThe military dialogue had initially been offered by leader Kim Jung-Un in his speech to a rare congress of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party earlier this month, but Seoul dismissed it as posturing. Pyongyang reiterated the offer on Friday, only to be rebuffed again by Seoul the same day. “We propose to hold working-level contact for opening the north-south military authorities’ talks at the date and place both sides deem convenient in late May or early June,” North Korea’s defence ministry was quoted as saying in a statement carried by state media.
