Unification Minister Lee In-young said Friday that South Korea proposed to North Korea on Thursday setting up a virtual conference system for two-way talks.
Lee said the proposal was made via a recently restored liaison hotline.
He told reporters that he hopes Pyongyang will respond positively.
Lee said Seoul will try to set up the system for virtual talks or "safe in-person talks" as soon as possible to make progress on stalled dialogue.
The minister stressed preparations have already been made to ensure that the two Koreas could hold cross-border meetings free from coronavirus concerns.
