SEOUL, Jan 9 : North Korea rejected on Friday a South Korean call for the resumption of stalled talks, a setback for efforts to reduce tension on the peninsula after the North Korean leader made a surprise New Year call for a summit.
South Korea's parliament called last month for a resumption of negotiations on various issues including North Korea's human rights, and families still separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. 
But an official at South Korea's Ministry of Unific-ation, which handles inter-Korean affairs, said the North had rejected the proposal, without giving a reason. South Korea has also proposed inter-Korean talks be held this month, but North Korea has not yet responded to that specific offer.     ?REUTERS
