DPRK: Resumption of Kaesong industrial complex depends on ROK's attitude


18:28, May 06, 2013

The DPRK’s National Defense Commission says the fate of the closed Kaesong industrial complex depends totally on the attitude of South Korea. A spokesman of the commission says the South Korea should end all of its hostilities and military provocations if it is really worried about the fate of Kaesong zone and inter-Korean relations.

The DPRK again insists South Korea should be held responsible for the closure of the complex. But the South Korean government says it is waiting for the DPRK to take the initiative to get in touch with it to negotiate on the issue.

Seoul has paid Pyongyang 13 million US dollars in workers’ wages, corporate taxes and utility charges, and asked Pyongyang to reopen military hotlines that were cut off earlier in the year. It also wants the DPRK to allow South Korean companies to take goods and materials out of the industrial park. But the DPRK hasn’t reacted to the requests.
