North Korea on Thursday proposed officials talks with South Korea to normalize commercial projects, including the Kaesong industrial zone that had been shuttered at the height of tensions between the rivals in early April.

North Korea's state-owned KCNA news agency also said the government would restore severed communications channels if the South accepts the offer of talks, indicating it was prepared to roll back a series of steps it has taken since March when relations between the two sides deteriorated.
