N Korea says no more military talks with S Korea

SEOUL, South Korea  — North Korea said Thursday that it would not hold further military talks with South Korea, accusing Seoul of lacking serious intent to improve relations.
The announcement by the North's military, made in a statement carried by state media, came one day after its first military talks with South Korea in months ended with no agreement.
The discussions were aimed at laying the groundwork for higher-level defense talks and were the first official dialogue between the Koreas since a North Korean artillery barrage killed four people on a front-line South Korean island in November.
