SEOUL, South Korea  — North Korea on Saturday reiterated a proposal for unconditional talks with South Korea to ease tensions on the divided peninsula.

The North's latest offer comes days after South Korea dismissed earlier calls by Pyongyang for negotiations.

Tensions between the two sides escalated after a North Korean artillery barrage on a South Korean-held island near their disputed maritime border killed four South Koreans in November.
