"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 U.S. halt to joint military exercises," North Korea's official KCNA news agency cited a spokesman for the country's foreign ministry as saying early on Saturday.
But asked if the United States would consider a halt to joint exercises, U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby said it had alliance commitments to South Korea.
"We are going to continue to make sure the alliance is ready in all respects to act in defense of the South Korean people and the security of the peninsula," he told a regular news briefing.
Pyongyang also wants an end to the US undertaking military exercises with South Korea. In August, 2015, North Korea warned the US it would “respond accordingly” if Washington did not cancel military exercises with Seoul.

No north korea didnt. They offered it to the US only and no other nations.
Please show us where NK offered peace to S. Korea.
Never mind don't bother because NK hasn't.[/quote
Way to shift goal posts - Pretty pathetic that N.Korea has to offer peace treaty to U.S. instead of S.Korea - Just shows who's actually in charge in S.Korea. . . But hey, don't provide proof that S.Korea can speak for themselves w/out U.S. puppeteering them. . .
Thanks for highlighting that!edit on 23-1-2016 by SurrenderingIsBack because: (no reason given)

It's not consistent of gentlmenly behavior.
N.Korea reached out & offered PEACE - yet you squirm?
- Do you want military conflicts or NOT? Do You Seek Re-Unification between the Korean Peninsula or Not?
- Simple: Yes or No answer.
One side has reached out - YOUR MOVE!
