North Korea rejects Seoul's 'insincere' talks offer

Foreign ministers of two Koreas meet in Manila

MANILA -- The foreign ministers of the two Koreas met in the Philippine capital on Sunday evening amid rising tensions on the peninsula over the North's testing of long-range missiles, the South Korean government said Monday.

South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha asked her counterpart Ri Yong Ho to respond to Seoul's suggestion of talks put forward by President Moon Jae-in in Berlin last month. The talks would include meetings between military officials as well as reunions for families who were separated during the Korean War.
