South Korea has proposed military talks with North Korea


The South Korean government has proposed military talks with North Korea in an attempt to defuse the ongoing tensions between the two countries.

South Korea's Defense Ministry has proposed meetings on July 21 between representatives of the two countries' militaries, CNN reported.

The South Korean government hopes the talks will end the "hostile acts" between the two countries, which "escalate military tension," according to a statement from South Korean Deputy Defense Minister, Seo Joo-seok.

President Trump has long been a critic of North Korea and its missile tests.

Trump urged North Korea's neighboring countries to get involved.

North Korean officials reportedly have yet to respond to South Korea's invitation.
