South Korea has proposed the truce village of Panmunjum as a venue for working-level military talks with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), local media reported Friday.

The bilateral talks, aimed at easing border restrictions and improving logistics at their joint industrial park located in the border town of Kaesong, were first proposed by the DPRK in what experts in Seoul said is a reconciliatory overture.

Seoul's Yonhap News Agency said South Korea's refusal to hold the meeting at the Kaesong industrial complex, a venue earlier proposed by the DPRK, implies its uneasiness about a possible " political offensive" that Pyongyang might launch at the industrial park, a long-standing but fragile symbol of inter- Korean cooperation.

The two Koreas have yet to narrow their differences on the date and the venue for the talks.
