South Korean minister vows to resume inter-Korean tourism at Mount Kumgang

Experts suspect that Kim Jong Un is not interested

South Korea’s unification minister met this week with the heads of Hyundai and Ananti — both of which invested in Mount Kumgang tourism in North Korea — and vowed that the government will push to resume tourism there after the COVID-19 pandemic settles down.

Minister Lee In-young framed his meetings with the two business leaders as a follow-up to U.S. President Joe Biden’s expression of support for inter-Korean cooperation after last month’s U.S.-ROK summit.
