North Korea has accepted a proposal made last Friday by South Korea to discuss South Korean assets at the Mt. Kumgang resort in the North.
According to the Unification Ministry, the North in a message Monday said the two sides will meet at the mountain resort on Wednesday after a failed attempt to resolve the issue late last month.
A group of 14 delegates from the South are scheduled to cross the border, including five government officials and five representatives of private firms.
Pyongyang has been threatening to strip the South of its properties at the resort since Seoul suspended package tours in 2008 following the shooting death of a South Korean woman at the resort by a North Korean soldier. Monday marked the third anniversary of the killing.
