U.S. should be consulted on potential South Korean tourism to the North: Harris

Items in future South Korean tourist luggages could possibly breach sanctions, ambassador says

South Korean proposals surrounding possible "independent tourism" to North Korea by its citizens should be discussed with the United States, Ambassador Harry Harris told NK News at a press event in Seoul on Thursday.

The proposals, which were raised several times in the past week – including by President Moon Jae-in -- suggest the South Korean government may be considering allowing citizens to soon apply to go on tours to North Korea on a private basis.
