S. Korea rejects N. Korea's proposal to end military hostilities Updated: 2014-07-01 17:15:14 KST

South Korea has rejected in no uncertain terms a proposal from North Korea to end all military hostilities starting this coming Friday.
Seoul's unification ministry on Tuesday said the proposal was "nonsense" and lacked sincerity.
The ministry said that South Korea, along with the international community, is fully aware that the North's nuclear and missile programs stand as the biggest threats to the peace and security of the region.
An official at the unification ministry said the latest offer could be seen as an attempt by the regime to mend inter-Korean ties ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to Seoul later this week.
