Why reopening the Kaesong Industrial Complex won’t violate sanctions
Former policy advisor to MoU argues complex can be reopened, says gov't claims are "fake news"

South Korea's Ministry of Unification (MoU) has claimed that the reopening of the Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC) would be challenging, due to United Nations Security Council Resolutions. This is a groundless claim.

I worked as a policy advisor to the former Minister of Unification and was one of the first South Koreans to visit the KIC during its ribbon-cutting ceremony.
