JSA tours to inter-Korean border will resume after nearly a year of closures

UNC did not give a specific date, but said that tours will start again “in the near future”

Tours to the Joint Security Area along the inter-Korean border will start up again after nearly a year of African Swine Fever-related closures, the United Nations Command (UNC) announced on Monday.

The tours first reportedly came to a halt in Oct. 2019, when the threat of African Swine Fever (ASF) cases coming from the DPRK put South Korea’s pork livestock at risk.
