South Korea's National Security Council says the resumption of tours to the inter-Korean border village of Panmunjeom next week, will be a great opportunity to experience the reality of the Korean Peninsula and a site of peace.
During a weekly meeting Thursday, the NSC said South Korea will increase visits in line with measures to return to normalcy from the pandemic.
Tours are set to reopen starting next Wednesday, after a four-month stop.
The NSC added that it will step up cooperation with the international community to bolster UN Peacekeeping efforts especially as Seoul is set to host the 2021 UN Peacekeeping Ministerial next month.
Meanwhile, the NSC also vowed to continue working for a swift resumption of talks with North Korea based on coordination between Seoul and Washington.
