08:26, May 02, 2013

SEOUL, May 1 (Xinhua) -- A spokesman of South Korean Unification Ministry said Wednesday the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) should make sensible choice to make the operation of Kaesong Industrial Complex return to normal.

"There are still seven South Koreans remaining in the Kaesong Industrial Complex until now. They will return to South Korea as soon as they complete all the remaining problems. The DPRK is responsible for the suspensions of factories in Kaesong Industrial Complex," he said in a statement.

The spokesman emphasized that Seoul has had its door still open for dialogue with Pyongyang, urging the DPRK to make a sensible choice.

The DPRK rejected Seoul's talks offer for Kaesong Industrial Complex last Friday. Following the DPRK's response, South Korea decided to withdraw all their workers in Keasong last week. South Korea has pulled out all but seven of its workers in the early morning of Tuesday.
