North Korea (WSYR-TV/CNN) - North Korea is now reaching out to the United States.
The country's state-run news agency reports North Korea is proposing high-level talks with the American government, to "ease the tensions in the Korean Peninsula."
The report says topics that could be discussed include easing military tensions, a change from a truce treaty to a peace treaty, and nuclear matters.
Details about when and where the talks would be held would be left up the U.S.
There has been no public response yet from the U.S. State Department or The White House.
Previously, the Obama Administration had said talks would happen only if North Korea showed it was serious about ending its nuclear program.
North Korea has been at odds with many in the international community, including the United States, over its missile and nuclear programs.
Tensions flared after North Korea launched a long-range rocket in December and an underground nuclear test in February.
