SKorea proposes talk with NKorea on joint complex

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -

South Korea says it has proposed a working-level talk with North Korea to discuss restarting a shuttered joint industrial complex in the North.

   Seoul's Unification Ministry said Thursday its proposed talk will also address managing facilities and goods that South Korean businessmen left behind at the Kaesong industrial complex.

   Seoul proposed they meet at the truce village on their border Saturday.

   The proposal comes after North Korea allowed South Korean businessmen to visit Kaesong when they said they want to move their gear out of the park.

   Kaesong was the last major symbol of inter-Korean rapprochement until Pyongyang withdrew its workers in April.

   Negotiating talks on the industrial park and other scrapped ventures had taken place briefly last month but ultimately broke down.
