Seoul says it will discuss resuming Panmunjom tours after Travis King crossing

Unification ministry says it cannot predict when tours to border village will resume but will consult with UN Command

Seoul will discuss the resumption of tours to Panmunjom with the U.N. Command (UNC), the unification ministry said Monday, with tours suspended since American soldier Travis King crossed into North Korea at the border village in July.

“We will continue to consult on the necessary procedural matters with related organizations, including the UNC, for resuming the tours. However, we cannot currently predict when the tours will resume," ministry spokesperson Koo Byung-sam told reporters on Monday.
