N. Korea to close border with S. Korea
The Washington Post reported Sunday that North Korean media say its military has informed South Korea that effective December 1 overland passage through a past military warzone will be banned.
The report says the border shutdown will mean a total suspension of tourism to the North Korean city of Kaesong.
A blog linked to the WA Post article said North and South Korea technically are still at war with the North holding a majority of the power.
South Korean Unification Ministry Spokesman Kim Ho-nyoun said if North Korea follows through, there will be a negative impact on inter-Korean relations.
