SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said Sunday he wants "genuine" talks with North Korea, days after the North refused any further dialogue.

Tension on the Korean peninsula spiked last year over two deadly incidents — the sinking of a South Korean naval ship and a North Korean artillery barrage in November that killed four people on a front-line South Korean island.

The countries' military officers met earlier this month but failed to reach a breakthrough, with both sides accusing the other of rupturing their first dialogue since the bombardment. North Korea later threatened not to hold any more military talks with Seoul.
