DPRK official welcomes planned visit of S.Korean business group to Kaesong

Comments come as South Korean FM reiterates fate of KIC depends on U.S.-led sanctions

North Korea is “ready to welcome” almost 200 South Korean businesspersons to visit the Kaesong Industrial Complex (KIC), a spokesperson with the country’s Ministry of External Economic Relations told Cuban state outlet Prensa Latina Tuesday.

The welcome message for the group of businesspersons – shut out of the KIC upon its sudden closure in early 2016 – appears to signal North Korea’s eagerness to jumpstart the process towards the park’s eventual reopening.
