South Korea warns North Korea not to use assets from Kaesong Industrial Complex

The wheels on the bus should not go ‘round, unification ministry says, after Hyundai buses spotted in state media

Seoul has warned Pyongyang to stop operating South Korean-owned assets at the Kaesong Industrial Complex, the joint economic project that the South pulled out of in 2016.

The unification ministry issued the statement on Thursday after North Korean state media featured buses that previously operated in the complex. North Korea has used these buses outside the Kaesong premises for years.
