DPRK agrees to open border for South Koreans in Kaesong

THE Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK) today said it allows South Koreans to make cross-border visits to the Inter-Korean Industrial Complex in DPRK's border city of Kaesong, South Korean official said.

According to the Unification Ministry spokesman Kim Ho-nyoun, the DPRK agreed to resume overland trips across the inter-Korean border as of 10 am local time (0100 GMT Tuesday).

The DPRK announced early Monday to cut off all military communication channels with South Korea in protest of ongoing joint military exercises between South Korea and the United States. Local media said scores of South Koreans were not able to return to South Korea from the industrial complex in Kaesong yesterday.

The South Korean government said on Monday there were over 600 South Koreans in DPRK as of Monday morning. It urged the DPRK to ensure safety and quick return of its citizens staying in DPRK.
