South Korea has asked the United Nations to make exceptions to the sanctions against the DPRK to get an opportunity to develop projects between the two countries, writes Bloomberg.
The corresponding statement was made by Minister of foreign Affairs of South Korea Kang Kyung Hwa. “The position of the South Korean government is that we will request exceptions to the sanctions against the DPRK to develop joint projects with them. We’re going to continue to implement sanctions, but to continue cooperation with North Korea, without breaking them,” said Kahn.
According to her, in the near future negotiations with the North Korean authorities will hold the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo. He will discuss the conditions for final phase of Pyongyang’s nuclear programme. One of these conditions may be the conclusion of a peace agreement between the countries. It is not excluded that Pompeo will be able to arrange a new summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN and U.S. President Donald trump. The first such summit was held in June in Singapore.
Major joint project of South Korea and North Korea for 14 years was the industrial Park of Kaesong near the border of the two countries. It was opened in 2002, it manufactured products formed the basis of trade between countries. In 2016, the Park was closed on the initiative of then South Korean President Park Geun-Hye because of the nuclear tests conducted by Pyongyang.
