NKorea proposes parliamentary talks with SKorea

North Korea has proposed holding parliamentary talks with South Korea. It's the latest in a series of diplomatic overtures the North has made to the South after months of animosity.
Pyongyang says it wants to overcome the "grave situation" between the Koreas and seek ways to move forward.
The offer came in a statement Friday carried by the North's official Korean Central News Agency.
The latest move comes two days after South Korea proposed holding a preliminary meeting with North Korea on Feb. 11 to lay the groundwork for high-level defense talks.
The Koreas have been in a standoff following the North's November shelling of a South Korean island and its alleged attack on a South Korean warship in March.
