SEOUL — The Republic of Korea (ROK) on Monday offered to hold working-level talks with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) to discuss issues on the DPRK's scenic resort of Mount Kumgang.

Seoul's Unification Ministry spokesman Lee Sang-min said at a press briefing that the government and Hyundai Asan Corp., which participated in the inter-Korean tour project, sent notices earlier in the day to DPRK counterparts through the inter-Korean liaison office in the DPRK's border town of Kaesong.

ROK proposed working-level talks with the DPRK to discuss issues on the halted tour by ROK people to the Mount Kumgang resort, including the issues raised by the DPRK side

In the notices, the ROK side proposed working-level talks with the DPRK to discuss issues on the halted tour by ROK people to the Mount Kumgang resort, including the issues raised by the DPRK side.

The DPRK, in its notice delivered to ROK on Friday, had offered to discuss the removal of ROK-built facilities in Mount Kumgang using the exchange of letters, not face-to-face talks.

The DPRK said in the notice that it would build and launch its own tour project in Mount Kumgang.

The tour by ROK people to Mount Kumgang, launched in 1998, has been suspended since a ROK female tourist was shot dead in 2008 by a DPRK soldier after allegedly venturing into off-limit areas.

The ROK spokesman said that resolving all inter-Korean issues through dialogue and consultations has been an unwavering government stance of ROK.

Lee said ROK would seek creative ways to resolve the Mount Kumgang issues considering the international situation, inter-Korean relations progress and public sentiment.

He noted that the Mount Kumgang area has been a space not only for the inter-Korean tour project, but also for the reunion of the separated Korean families, and social and cultural exchanges between the two Koreas.

Asked about whether having discussed the issue with the United States, Lee said the notice delivery was not subject to an issue to be discussed with the US side, though he said denuclearization and lasting peace settlement should be achieved through close cooperation between Seoul and Washington.

He added that ROK does not consult with the United States on all inter-Korean issues.
