North Korea puts forward demands for dialogue and negotiation - End UN Sanctions - End War games on Border - South Korea finds these proposals incomprehensible and absurd Democracy and Class Struggle says the proposals are both sensible and comprehensible
"If the US and the South enemies... genuinely want dialogue and negotiation, they should take these steps," the defence commission said.
"The first step will be withdrawing the UN Security Council resolutions cooked up on ridiculous grounds," the statement said.
"Second, you need to tell the whole world that you will not get involved in any rehearsal for a nuclear war that threatens our nation.
Dialogues and war games can never go together," it added.
But a spokesman from South Korea's Foreign Ministry rejected the North's demands.
"North Korea's demands are totally incomprehensible. It's absurd," spokesman Cho Tai-young said.
"We strongly urge the North to stop making such incomprehensible demands and to make the wise choice we have repeatedly urged," he added.

Democracy and Class Struggle says the media war against the DPRK has not only involved the normal suspects but has also shown the hand of US Military Intelligence which has proved quite skillful at manipulating the US Left to concentrate on "problems" in North Korea and not on the up to 200,000 troops from South Korea and the United States that have been probing the North Korean border up to the Northern Limit Line since beginning of March and still continuing has we write until beginning of May 2013.
The hardest words for the US Anti War Left to speak is "Hands off North Korea" ask yourself why ?
