South Korean staff spent their first night at the joint-Korean Kaesong Industrial Complex on Tuesday to check facilities before it reopens. It was the first time in 130 days, since all South Korean staff withdrew on May 3 that South Koreans stayed overnight there.
They are 27 staffers from the industrial park management committee, KEPCO, KT, and the Korea Water Resources Corporation. They will check electricity, communications and water supply for three or four days.
Kim Ki-woong, who heads the South Korean delegation, told the North Korean side that the staffers would spend the night, and his North Korean counterpart Pak Chol-su agreed.
Meanwhile, the joint committee discussed the schedule for reopening the industrial park far into the night but reached no agreement.
