Little Progress Seen in Korean Peninsula Industry Talks

Discussions between South and North Korea on Wednesday failed to make substantial headway in reaching a deal for resuming joint business initiatives that were halted this spring when Korean Peninsula tensions simmered, the Associated Press reported.

Pyongyang and Seoul did agree to convene again next week for more talks on reopening the Kaesong industrial complex.

That the meetings are taking place at all is a dramatic improvement over the poor diplomatic climate that existed in March and April when North Korea made repeated threats of launching nuclear missile attacks against South Korea and the United States.
