South Korea offers to hold working-level talks with North Korea about Kumgang Mountain Project.

정부금강산시설 철거 요구에 남북 실무회담 제안

According to the Ministry of Unification spokesman Lee Sang Min, South Korea has offered to hold working-level talks with North Korea about North Korea’s removal of South Korea’s Kumgang Mountain facilities. North Korea made the demand by sending their related notification documents to Ministry of Unification and Hyundai Group last Friday.

Lee said, “All of the inter-Korean related issues must go through dialogue and consultation according to our government position. Since the Kumgang tour program includes South Korea businesses’ property rights, the measures cannot be made unilaterally.

It is unclear whether the North will accept the dialogue proposal.

The government sent back with the notification with an offer of working-level talks. It contains not only an answer to the removal of facilities but also a suggestion of a new direction of development of the Kumgang tour project.

However, others are concerned that the reason North Korea suggested the measure with an ‘exchange document type’ is that they are not willing to meet in person.
