Talks “underway” to secure sanctions exemption for inter-Korean rail survey: MOU

Schedule for inspections of Gyeongui and Donghae lines to be "determined accordingly," Seoul says

Seoul has begun consultations with the United States and others to secure a sanctions exemption needed to allow a joint survey on inter-Korean rail cooperation, a Ministry of Unification (MOU) official said on Thursday.

The comments, made during a closed-door briefing and confirmed separately to NK News, suggest the previously-delayed project will now go ahead, pending approval from the UN Security Council Sanctions Committee on North Korea.
