Seoul: North and South Korea on Thursday agreed "in principle to hold working-level talks" over Kaesong complex, agencies reported.

South Korea had earlier said that it had proposed a working-level talk with North Korea to discuss restarting the shuttered joint industrial complex in the North.

Seoul`s Unification Ministry said on Thursday that its proposed talk will also address managing facilities and goods that South Korean businessmen left behind at the Kaesong industrial complex.

The proposal had come after North Korea allowed South Korean businessmen to visit Kaesong when they said they want to move their gear out of the park.

Kaesong was the last major symbol of inter-Korean rapprochement until Pyongyang withdrew its workers in April.

Negotiating talks on the industrial park and other scrapped ventures had taken place briefly last month but ultimately broke down.
