North Korea is threatening to shut down a factory complex that’s the last major symbol of inter-Korean cooperation.
A spokesman for the North’s office controlling the Kaesong industrial complex said Saturday that it would close the factory park just across the border in North Korea if South Korea continued to undermine its dignity.
Pyongyang expressed anger over media reports that said the factory remained open because it’s a source of hard currency for the North.
Business has been operating normally at Kaesong despite the rising animosity.
