North, South Korean officials meet for talks

North and South Korean officials met on Saturday (July 6) to find a way to reopen a jointly run industrial zone, a rare source of steady cash for the impoverished North, a month after their last attempt at dialogue collapsed in acrimony over protocol. The South Korean government has been under pressure from the owners of the 123 smaller companies that run factories at the Kaesong industrial park, which sits just minutes from the heavily armed border, to find a compromise to reopen it. North Korea shut down the factories in April, pulling out all 53,000 of its workers and banning South Korean firms from crossing the border with supplies and managers at the height of tensions between the two sides. Earlier this year, North Korea threatened strikes with nuclear and other missiles against the South and the United States after the United Nations tightened sanctions against it for conducting its third nuclear test in February.
