N Korea to freeze S Korean facilities at mountain resort
Seoul: North Korea is planning to freeze a series of South Korea-owned facilities at its eastern mountain resort and to expel the neighbour`s personnel from there.
The communist country had threatened "extraordinary measures", if South Korea did not agree by this month to resume its long-suspended cross-border tours to the Mount Kumgang resort.
In a statement released yesterday through its official Korean Central News Agency, monitored in Seoul, Pyongyang said it has scrapped its tourism deal with South Korea and will allow an unspecified third party to take over the tours.
The North also threatened to "entirely re-evaluate" its joint industrial park with South Korea, if relations between the divided states do not improve.
