Two Koreas hold talks on closed industrial zone
SEOUL (AFP) - North and South Korea held a second round of talks on Tuesday on reopening their Kaesong joint industrial zone - five months after it was shut down during soaring military tensions.
The newly formed Kaesong joint committee first met last week but was unable to reach any agreement on the timing for resuming operations at the complex.
One apparent stumbling block was a South Korean request for North Korea to provide compensation to those companies hurt by the park's closure.
Tuesday's second round of talks began at 10am (9am Singapore time) in Kaesong, which lies 10 kilometres over the border in North Korea.
