Kaesong Complex to Get Internet Access

The inter-Korean Kaesong Industrial Complex will finally get access to the Internet under a new agreement between the two sides.

The Unification Ministry said on Sunday the two sides in a meeting on Friday discussed how and when to set up the connection and guarantee confidentiality.

North Korea in principle agreed to permit Internet access last year but kept dragging its heels till now.

The ministry will leave it to provider KT and the [North] Korea Posts and Telecommunications Co. to work out the details.
