SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea on Thursday withdrew offers for talks with South Korea on reunions of separated families and resuming tours to a mountain resort, Seoul said.
South Korea's Unification Ministry said North Korea now instead wants to focus on ongoing negotiations meant to reopen a shuttered jointly run factory complex.
North Korea made offers Wednesday. Seoul had agreed to talk about arranging family reunions but rejected Pyongyang's proposal to discuss resumption of South Korean tours to a North Korean mountain.
Seoul said it will again ask North Korea to agree to talks on family reunions.
The two Koreas recently agreed on a desire to reopen the Kaesong complex north of their border, but they have not agreed on the details.
Talks aimed at restarting the factory park ended Wednesday with no breakthrough. Both sides agreed to meet again Monday to discuss restoring what was once a symbol of cooperation between the rivals.
