North Korea requested a one-day postponement to the working-level meeting with South Korea, initially planned to be held on Wednesday to discuss details of an inter-Korean leader summit in late April, South Korea's Unification Ministry said.

The talks, which will discuss protocol, security and media coverage of the upcoming summit, are being held at the Peace House on the South Korean side of the Panmunjeom truce village.

When asked how Seoul will handle the issue in the process of inter-Korean dialogue, the foreign minister said South Korea has a "firm and basic stance" on the DPRK human rights issue.

"A complete dismantlement of the North's nuclear program is a shared goal not just of South and the USA but also of the worldwide community", Kang said.

Kang said the 2 Koreas have major issues, such as denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and ways to consolidate peace.

"In order to enhance dialogue, the topics that both sides have agreed upon will be discussed", Kang told reporters. "I believe more preparation is needed at the government-level with regard to the matter of including it in the agenda of the current South-North dialogue". The summit, if held, will be the third of its kind after those held in 2000 and 2007.

But she noted that her country wants to have open-minded talks without becoming rigid over the agenda. "So, it's hard to say what will be included or not".

A commentary from the North's state-run KCNA news agency Monday cautioned that "now is time to reject cooperation with foreign forces".

"The anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" the hostile forces cooked up again is a product of the crimes and plot-breeding to tarnish the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK by going extremes to demonize it and, at the same time, to ratchet up worldwide sanctions and pressure with it as a pretext and furthermore realize 'regime change, '" it said.

Warning Seoul that "denying the dignity and the system of the counterpart" might impede ongoing inter-Korean rapprochement, an English-language version of the article accused South Korea of a "double-dealing attitude".
