SEOUL, Jan. 23 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's unification ministry said Thursday it plans to open a new website next week to help better inform people about North Korea.

The ministry, which handles inter-Korean affairs, said it will provide comprehensive information on North Korea ranging from politics and the military to economy and social issues on a single portal.

It also said it will provide information on more than 290 high-profile North Korean officials, as well as information on geographic features of the isolated country.

The ministry said users can see the 105-story Ryugyong Hotel and other monuments in 3D imagery.

The website (http://nkinfo.unikorea.go.kr) is set to open on Monday, according to the ministry.
