A working-level military meeting between the U.S.-led United Nations Command and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) started Thursday morning, the command said.

The colonel-level talks, proposed by the command, are aimed at discussing the sinking in March of a South Korean warship blamed on the DPRK's torpedo attack, a charge Pyongyang repeatedly denied.

The meeting came after the United Nations Security Council issued a presidential statement condemning the attack on the warship, which took 46 lives of South Korean sailors. Pyongyang said it was "satisfied" with the statement, which stopped short of directly naming it as a culprit.
