2013/08/05 17:25

SEOUL, Aug. 5 (Yonhap) -- North Korea remained silent over the "final talks" proposal for reopening a suspended inter-Korean factory park on Monday, the government said, a day after Seoul warned it is losing patience with Pyongyang's reticence.

The Ministry of Unification, which handles inter-Korean affairs, said the communist country did not send any message to the South regarding the dialogue offer when contact was made at 9 a.m. and again at 4 p.m. via the inter-Korean communications line that runs through the neutral truce village of Panmunjom.
