After holding meetings with Lee Jong Hyeok, the vice chairman of the Norths Asia Pacific Peace Committee, at the Hyundai Asan Office in Gaesong, Hyundai Group Chairwoman Hyun Jeong-eun said yesterday, I cleared up the misunderstanding with North Korea.
After returning to the South through inter-Korean Customs, Immigrations and Quarantine (CIQ) in Paju, Gyeonggi Province yesterday afternoon, Hyun told reporters, I met with Lee and held in-depth discussions with him over pending issues, including the normalization of the Mt. Geumgang tour, adding, I was able to dissipate fissures between the two sides and reaffirm mutual trust through the meetings.
Hyun explained, The two talks were held in a very cozy atmosphere from beginning to end and we held a luncheon at a North Korean restaurant, Bongdonggwan.
Hyun added, I will meet Lee again in Gaesong on November 11 to draw up the best measures on the issues, including the normalization of the tour to Mt. Geumgang.
As a result, the Mt. Geumgang tour seems to be back on track before the commemoration ceremony to mark the seventh anniversary of Hyundai Asans Mt. Geumgang tour project on November 19.
