NKorea, US-led UN Command to meet over sinking

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - The American-led U.N. Command says it will meet with North Korea to discuss the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship blamed on Pyongyang.

The U.N. Command said in a statement Monday that the meeting will take place at the Korean border village of Panmunjom on Tuesday.

It said colonels from the U.N. Command and North Korea will meet to prepare for general-level talks on the March 26 sinking of the warship that killed 46 South Korean sailors.

The U.N. Security Council approved a statement Friday that condemned the sinking but stopped short of directly blaming North Korea.

North Korea flatly denies the allegation and has warned any punishment would trigger war.
