Report of North ordering Kaesong pullout distorted: S.Korea

South Korea said reports that North Korea had ordered companies in the Kaesong joint industrial zone to pull out by April 10 were "distorted" and it had merely requested a list of people who planned to leave by that date.

"The North's request to several companies for a schedule of people returning to the South by April 10 has been distorted to say the North had requested a total pullout," the Unification Ministry said.

An executive with the association of the 123 companies that operate in Kaesong, Ok Sun-suk, told reporters earlier that the North had ordered South Koreans to pull out by April 10.
