North Korea has proposed high-level talks with the US, days after cancelling a meeting with South Korean officials.

The National Defence Commission said in a statement it wanted "serious discussions" with the US to "secure peace and stability in the region".

The BBC's Kevin Kim in Seoul told BBC World News, "The jury is still out about what the real motives of North Korea might be".
