S Korea Offers to Visit Stalled Joint Tour Resort in North

Tuesday, 05 November 2019 09:38 PM

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea says it has offered to send a delegation to check on facilities at a long-stalled joint tourist resort in North Korea.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently ordered the destruction of South Korean-made hotels and other facilities at the North's Diamond Mountain resort, saying they appear "shabby" and "unpleasant-looking."

Seoul's Unification Ministry said Wednesday it sent a message proposing a delegation dispatch to conduct safety checks on those facilities.

Ministry spokesman Lee Sang-min says North Korea hasn't responded.

South Korea earlier proposed face-to-face talks on the issue. North Korea has rejected that and insisted on document exchanges.

South Korean-run tours to the mountain resort has been suspended since 2008 when a North Korean soldier fatally shot a South Korean tourist.
