SEOUL, August 26 (Itar-Tass) - South Korean companies began Monday examining production facilities and preparing the equipment at their enterprises ahead of the reopening of the jointly run industrial complex shut down amid tensions between the two Koreas.

The Kaesong Industrial Complex Enterprises Association reports that North Korean employees turned up to work with the approval of the North Korean authorities following a request by South Korean companies.
