S. Koreans not ‘100% satisfied’ with Kaesong talks outcome

North not showing enough remorse for closing Kaesong Industrial Complex, analysts in South say

Korea’s monsoon season––which normally starts in mid-July––arrived early this year, causing South Korean businessmen to put pressure on the government in Seoul to work with the North in the securing of products and materials left behind in the inter-Korean complex after its closure in April.
