A group of 21 people including Democratic United Party lawmakers and successful candidates in recent parliamentary elections have submitted an application with the Ministry of Unification to visit the Kaesong Industrial Complex on May 16th.
Four of the group including Lim Su Kyung told reporters at the Ministry of Unification this lunchtime, “We have put in an application with the Ministry of Unification for a total of 21 people, including seven lawmakers from the Democratic United Party ‘Korean Peninsula Peace Committee’ and 14 other lawmakers-elect, to visit the Kaesong Complex on this coming 16th."
“We hope that, at the same time as showing the South’s desire for peace and to relieve tensions, pushing forward with this trip to the Kaesong Complex will provide an opportunity to recover North-South relations,” they noted.
If the group’s application is approved, the 21 hope to meet with workers, business owners and managers in the complex in order to take on board their concerns. There are not currently any plans to meet with officials from the North Korean side.
The Ministry of Unification has announced it will review the application.
