South Korea's ruling party presidential candidate vows to resume tourism to North Korea

Recently a prominent leader from  South Korea’s ruling Democratic Party Lee Jae-myung, said he will resume tourism to North Korea’s Mount Kumgang as soon as possible if he’s elected in the March 9 polls.

He made the commitment during a visit to Goseong, a border county 466 kilometres northeast of Seoul, alluding to a programme that was halted in 2008 after a South Korean tourist was killed by a North Korean guard on the mountain. At an observatory overlooking the mountain range, Lee declared, "I will reopen the doors of tourism to Mount Kumgang as soon as feasible." 

He also promised to create a unique international tourism zone straddling the border and promote an ecotourism programme within the Demilitarized Zone that separates the two Koreas.
