SEOUL, Aug. 2 (Yonhap) -- North Korea remained silent for a fifth day on Friday concerning South Korea's proposal for "final talks" aimed at reopening the joint industrial complex in Kaesong, the government said.

Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae made the talks proposal on Sunday after six rounds of working-level talks in July ended without the two Koreas reaching an agreement on preconditions for resuming operations at the Kaesong Industrial Complex, the last remaining symbol of South-North rapprochement.
