North Korea to send troops if Kaesong talks fail
(07-25 18:24)

North Korea cannot help stationing its troops in Kaesong if the ongoing working-level talks with South Korea fail, Pyongyang's top delegate said Thursday.
"Talks are in danger of breakdown," Park Chol-su, the North's top negotiator, told South Korean reporters in Kaesong. "If the fate of the Kaesong industrial zone is shattered in this way, military camps cannot help being restored (in Kaesong)."
Park suddenly visited the South Korean pressroom in Kaesong without notice to make such comments, according to YTN and Yonhap News Agency.
Pyongyang delegation handed out to South Korean reporters the copies of its draft agreement that it proposed during the talks.
