South Korea mulls lifting sanctions if North Korea improves relationsUpdated: 2014-06-19 06:29:26 (KST)
South Korea has hinted that it might consider lifting certain economic sanctions off North Korea if Pyongyang chooses to show good faith in improving inter-Korean relations.
Speaking at the National Assembly on Wednesday, Unification Minister Ryoo Kihl-jae said, if the mood on the peninsula changes and Pyongyang shows steps towards building trust, then the conditions could be met to remove the sanctions.
The sanctions, known as the May 24th measures in Korea, put almost all inter-Korean economic deals on hold, except for the joint Kaesong Industrial Complex.
