South Korea losing patience with North on stalled Kaesong talks

South Korea on Sunday warned the North it was ‘reaching the limit’ of its patience over stalled talks to revive a joint industrial complex once seen as a rare symbol of cooperation between the rivals.

Six rounds of cross-border meetings aimed at restarting the venture, a key source of hard currency for the North Korea’s communist regime, produced little progress as each side squabbled over who would take responsibility for the shutdown.

South Korea proposed ‘final’ talks on the Kaesong industrial zone, which has remained shuttered since early April following military tensions, on 28 July.
The most recent meeting on 25 July ended in acrimony with no date set for the next talks and Pyongyang officials accusing Seoul counterparts of being ‘arrogant’.
