North Korea has asked the UN security council to call for a new investigation into the March sinking of a South Korean warship.
The North’s ambassador Sin Son-ho wrote to the council, offering to cooperate with the South in a new probe.
North Korea has rejected the conclusion of an international investigation panel that it torpedoed and sank the Cheonan.
In a letter to the Security Council dated Tuesday, Sin called for “high-level military talks” between the two Koreas.
He also reiterated the North’s call for its own inspection team to be sent to the site of the sinking near the tense Korean sea border.
