Seoul warns N. Korea not to reboot joint factory park

Seoul warns N. Korea not to reboot joint factory park”

North Korea has started operating some Seoul-invested factories in its Kaesong industrial complex after South Korea pulled out of the joint venture, Pyongyang's online media said Friday, October 6.

Before the park was shut down a year ago, more than 120 South Korean companies were employing around 55,000 North Koreans at the joint facility which first opened in 2004 just north of their border.

The North Korea and the South Korea have found one more reason not to be good neighbours.

The South suspended operations at the industrial complex in February previous year, saying that money Pyongyang made from the venture was going towards its nuclear weapons program.

"No one can interfere with whatever we are doing in the industrial zone that lies within our sovereign territory", Uriminzokkiri, one of Pyongyang's propaganda outlets, wrote.

The agreement was reached during talks in Washington between US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and South Korean trade minister Kim Hyun-chong, according to South Korea's Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

More than six decades after the Korean War ended without a peace treaty, the peninsula remains bisected in a perpetual stalemate, with the US -backed South Korean military lined up against more than a million North Korean troops.

The non-stop mode of nuclear tests conducted by the North Korea makes nervous its neighbours.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Saturday that the US was in direct contact with North Korean officials, even though there is no official diplomatic relationship between Washington and Pyongyang.

The agreement supposes an achievement for the protectionist policies of U.S. President Donald Trump, who advocates to modify its FTA with South Korea and other countries.
