North Korea's military proposed Friday holding direct talks with US forces about forging a more permanent peace on the Korean peninsula, an unusual plea amid recent progress on the nuclear standoff between the two countries. The North's Korean Peoples Army proposed the talks, also be attended by a UN representative, "for the purpose of discussing the issues related to ensuring the peace and security on the Korean peninsula," the chief of the North Korean military's mission at the truce village of Panmunjom said in a statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. "It is easy to miss a chance, but difficult to get it," the North warned.
