Regarding the North’s KCNA report concerning Mount Geumgang

November 15, 2019

  o The ROK Government, under the principle of protecting the property rights of South Korean companies and resolving the Mount Geumgang issue based on inter-Korean agreements, has pursued consultations with the North since it raised the issue of removing South Korean facilities at the Mt. Geumgang tourism zone on October 25.

   - In response, on October 28 the ROKG proposed to hold working-level talks to discuss Mt. Geumgang tourism issues. On October 29, the North rejected the South’s proposal, and the ROKG accordingly notified on November 5 that it will form and send a joint inspection team.

   - On November 6 the North delivered a note insisting discussions in the form of document exchange, and the ROKG on November 7 reiterated the need for a joint inspection team’s visit.

  o On November 11, the North reasserted its position to discuss Mt. Geumgang issues through document exchange, noting that this will be its last warning. The North disclosed consultation details to date along with its position today(11.15) through a KCNA report.

  o The ROKG will closely consult with related parties and calmly manage the situation, while adhering to its consistent position that Mt. Geumgang issues need to be dealt under the consent of both the South and the North.

   - We urge the North to positively respond to our position to resolve the Mt. Geumgang issue.
