North Korea says it will stop conducting nuclear tests in exchange for a peace treaty with the United States and an end to joint military exercises between Washington and Seoul.

The proposal, published in North Korea's state media late Friday, is similar to previous offers by Pyongyang that have been quickly rejected by the U.S. and South Korea.

"Still valid are all proposals for preserving peace and stability on the peninsula and in Northeast Asia, including the ones for ceasing our nuclear test and the conclusion of a peace treaty in return for a U.S. halt to joint military exercises," said a newsreader on Pyongyang's state-run KRT TV, citing a Foreign Ministry spokesman.

US reaction

When asked about the proposal at a briefing Friday, U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said he had not heard about the offer.

"But look, we have significant alliance commitments with the Republic of Korea that we take very, very seriously, and we?re going to continue to make sure that the alliance is ready in all respects to act in defense of the South Korean people and the security of the peninsula," Kirby said.
