DPRK Sends Notice to S. Korea for Talks of Resuming Tour

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) -- The General Guidance Bureau for the Development of Scenic Spots of the DPRK Thursday sent a notice to the Ministry of Unification of south Korea, urging it again to hold the working talks between the authorities of the north and the south for discussing the issue of resuming the tour.

Expressing great regret at the insincere notice sent by the south side in which it groundlessly took issue with the north side's measures for confiscating and freezing real estates of the south side and raised them as prerequisites for opening the talks, after delaying for nearly 50 days the reply to the notice proposing the talks for resuming the tour sent by the latter to the former three times, talking about "examination" and "sending a notice later," the notice said that this attitude of the south side is, in fact, little short of rejecting the talks as commented by media.

It is the stand of the north side to discuss and settle all the matters concerning the measures for confiscating and freezing real estates as required by the south side, the notice held, urging it to stop insisting on its absurd pretexts any longer but come out for the above-said talks as soon as possible.

It suggested those authorities concerned to come out and discuss the matters concerning the opening of the above-said talks while the north-south Red Cross talks will be under way after their opening on November 25.
