In a symbolic move to welcome international capitalism, North Korea has reportedly agreed to let global corporations Coca-Cola and KFC begin operations in the capital Pyongyang.
Citing sources close to North Korea, Seoul-based YTN reported Thursday that a group of 10 people representing the two brands visited the North last week, and that the first Pyongyang branch will likely open in September or October.
VOA, meanwhile, says the idea of bringing in KFC is reported to have come up during a North Korean business delegation's trip to the U.S. in March.
