North Korea's intention and the ROKG's direction of response with regards to Mt. Geumgang issue

November 29, 2019

□ As the tourism sector is not subject to the North Korea sanctions of the UN Security Council, the Mt. Geumgang tourism zone is a promising tourism asset to the North. Accordingly, the North appears to be in the process of utilizing this zone.

o The North currently sees the decrepit facilities of the South as hindrance to the promotion of Mt. Geumgang tourism.

□ The ROKG is closely consulting with related parties in laying out a plan to revamp non-reusable facilities around Onjeong-ri(district) and Goseong Port. 

□ The Government’s position is to extensively discuss future directions for development of Mt. Geumgang tourism zone, including the problems raised by the North.
