Military officers from the U.S.-led United Nations Command and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) wrapped up a working-level military meeting that opened earlier Thursday, the command said.

The meeting, held in the truce village of Panmunjom, was aimed at discussing the sinking in March of a South Korean warship blamed on the DPRK's torpedo attack, a charge it has repeatedly denied. Details of the talks have yet to be released.

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.

As part of a trust-building measure, the command and the DPRK have held 16 general-level talks since 1998, and the latest round was held in March 2009.
