SEOUL, Aug. 8 (Yonhap) -- South Korea on Thursday began preparing in earnest for a fresh round of talks next week with North Korea on the revival of a suspended joint industrial park in the communist country.

Preparation for talks came a day after Pyongyang made a surprise proposal that working-level officials from both sides meet in the North Korean border town of Kaesong on Aug. 14 to discuss reopening the factory zone. Seoul agreed to the overture hours later, paving the way for the meeting.
