North and South Korea discuss reopening Kaesong complex

10 July 2013 Last updated at 13:14 BST

North and South Korea have started in-depth talks on reopening a jointly-run industrial zone in Kaesong.

The two sides agreed in principle to restart operations at the Kaesong Industrial Complex after marathon negotiations over the weekend.

South Korea says it wants assurances that Pyongyang will not unilaterally close the factory zone again.

Work at the Kaesong zone has been suspended since mid-April, when North Korea withdrew its workers.
