SEOUL, Aug. 14 (Yonhap) -- North Korea asked South Korea to extend Thursday's operation of their bilateral communication channel at Panmunjom, a truce village, officials here said, raising hopes that it would respond to Seoul's offer of high-level dialogue.
The Panmunjom liaison office closes at 4 p.m. every day but the North said it has a "message to deliver" within Thursday, said an official at the South's unification ministry.
On Monday, the South proposed high-level talks with the South next week.
