North Korean and U.S. military officials met at the inter-Korea border Sunday to discuss repatriation of the remains of American troops killed during the Korean War, a report said.

The Yonhap news agency, citing officials from both the US and South Korea, said the talks had begun at 0100 GMT/UTC in the border village of Panmunjom, which lies inside the DMZ separating the two Koreas. South Korea's Foreign Ministry said the North then requested higher level talks with the US-led United Nations Command.

The North's proposal of talks with the UN Command, even though the UN Command is led by the United States, was seen as an attempt to use the meeting to discuss not only the repatriation of war remains, but also other issues, such as a proposal to jointly declare an end to the 1950-1953 Korean War.
