Seoul to review opening of liaison office with North Korea

Blue House may delay the opening following cancellation of Mike Pompeo's trip to the DPRK

Seoul will review the opening of a joint liaison office with North Korea in Kaesong as negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang hit a stumbling block, the Blue House announced on Monday.

The news came after U.S. President Donald Trump's decision on Friday to cancel his Secretary of State's planned trip to the DPRK, citing a lack of progress on denuclearization.
