June 15 Committee granted permission to contact North Korea

NGO must send letters or faxes, as counterparts are not permitted to receive email or phone calls

A South Korean NGO on Wednesday received government approval to make contact with the North, the second such approval by the Moon Jae-in administration so far.

“Yes, we are now authorized to exchange handwritten letters or faxes with our counterparts in the North,” Lee Seung-hwan, a representative of the June 15 South Korean Committee, told NK News.
