Wednesday, 29 May 2013 - 7:57



Pyongyang has said it is willing to allow South Korean businessmen to visit the jointly-run Kaesong zone.


In a statement carried by state media, North Korea said it was prepared to discuss with the businessmen how normal operations could be resumed.


But South Korea expressed worry about its citizens' safety and asked that government-level talks be held.


Operations at the joint industrial complex have been suspended since the North withdrew its workers in April.
