North Korea calls for '\'national cooperation'\' with South Korea
North Korea called for "national cooperation" with South Korea as Seoul on Monday sent two special envoys to Pyongyang to help defuse tensions over the North's nuclear development.
Lim Dong-won, a national security adviser to South Korean President Kim Dae-jung and a former Unification Minister, was accompanied by Lee Jong-Dae-jun, an envoy of President-elect Roh Moo-hyun, who takes office on Feb. 25.
According to AP, Lim said he was not carrying any specific "solution" to the dispute. (Albawaba.com)
