North Korea extends Wonsan-Kalma construction deadline to April 2020: KCNA

Project now set to be wrapped up in time for next year's Day of the Sun holiday

The North Korean leadership has decided to extend the construction deadline for the marquee Wonsan-Kalma project by six months, state media reported on Saturday, the second such extension since the plan's inception.

The landmark tourism-linked construction project was originally set to be completed in time for this year's April 15 Day of the Sun celebrations, a national holiday marking the anniversary of the country's founding President Kim Il Sung.
