      North Korea is still using 100 trucks that Hyundai Group founder Chung Ju-yung donated 18 years ago together with a herd of cattle amid an unprecedented thaw in inter-Korean relations.

      Quoting North Koreans who visited China, Radio Free Asia reported Thursday the trucks were stripped of their South Korean logos and distributed to various factories, where they are still in use today.

      One source said the South Korean trucks "still work and are indispensible means of transport."

      One North Korean from Ryanggang Province said Japanese trucks and heavy machinery that are more than 20 years old are also still in use.
