SEOUL, September 25 (Itar-Tass) — The South Korean government intends to repair roads in North Korea, leading to the joint-venture industrial park in the border city of Kaesong and damaged by summer inundations, reported on Sunday a spokesman of the South Korean management of the Kaesong industrial park.
These roads are daily used by 50,000 North Koreans, working at industrial establishments of this joint complex. The roads were damaged by torrential rains last summer.
“As far as we know, the Republic of Korea government intends to repair North Korean roads, leading to the Kaesong industrial complex,” said a staff member of the South Korean administration. According to the staff member, the assessment of the damage, caused by torrential rains, was already made by the South Korean committee on running the Kaesong complex along with the South Korean state-owned corporation LH.
The South Korean Ministry of Unification, in charge of inter-Korean affairs, confirmed the plan, drafted by the Seoul government.
A total of 47,000 North Korean workers, putting out clothing, footwear and kitchenware, are employed at enterprises of nearly 120 South Korean firms in Kaesong.
