SEOUL, August 27 (Itar-Tass) - South Korea proposed to North Korea to hold talks on October 2 over the resumption of trips of South Korean tourists in Kumgangsan Mountains (Diamond Mountains).
Since 1997 North Korea and South Korea have been implementing the programme of tourism development at this resort for more than ten years. The resort became some kind of symbol of reconciliation between the countries.
The trips of South Korean citizens to the Kumgangsan resort stopped after a North Korean watchman shot down a South Korean woman tourist, who had got in the closed access zone by chance in July 2008. Then Seoul demanded apologies from Pyongyang, a joint investigation of the incident and stronger security measures for the tourists, but Pyongyang refused to do it. Later the North Korean authorities deported all the South Korean staff from Kumgangsan.
