Overseas labor revenues are more than twice those of the Kaesong Industrial Complex

Seoul’s Ministry of Unification (MoU) requested South Korean citizens not visit overseas North Korean restaurants on Wednesday at a regular press briefing, in line with President Park Geun-hye's speech on the same day.

MoU spokesperson Jung Joon-hee emphasized the gravity of the situation, even though it is not against South Korean law to visit the restaurants.
