PYONGYANG, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - North Korea announced on Wednesday its decision to reopen the Kaesong Industrial Complex for South Korean business people, a representative of the Committee for the Peaceful Unification of the Fatherland said in a statement.
He said the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea was doing this “in the interests of inter-Korean reconciliation”. The Kaesong Industrial Complex that was established just north of the birder in 2004 as a rare symbol of between the two Koreas, has been idle since April 9.
The operation of the Kaesong complex, where 53 thousand North Korean workers were producing consumer goods at factories, opened by 123 South Korean firms, was stopped at the order of Pyongyang. Then the DPRK motivated this step by the reaction to the annual US-South Korean war games.
